Ghana defender Musah Nuhu says he’s not worried at being overlooked in recent Black Stars call-ups.
The 24 year old St. Gallen midfielder was in the form of his life when he earned a first invite into the senior national team ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
However, a cruciate ligament injury suffered while in training camp with the Black Stars cost him such an opportunity. Eventually he stayed out of action for 330 days.
Following his return to playing again for St. Gallen FC, Musah Nuhu has had limited opportunities to play for the first team, although hes featured more for the junior side in a bid tow work on his match fitness and readiness.
Speaking to FootballMadeinGhana.com in an exclusive interview, the former WAFA defender honestly admitted he’s done little to be worthy of a national team call-up now.
However he revealed his drive to work harder, reclaim his spot at club level and impress on the pitch to stand a chance of another national team invite.
Asked if he was worried about recent omissions from Black Stars’ squad, the center back replied “No, not at all, because I wasn’t playing for like a year and a half.
“When I started playing, I came on as a sub. Sadly when I started playing, I got a knock again and I wasn’t even thinking about it (Black Stars call-up) to come right now. I not worried. If the chance comes and I start playing games, Maybe I will get my chance,” he concluded.
Musah Nuhu has also shared his take on what representing the national team, most especially at senior level means for a footballer.
“It’s something special because when you were young you dream about representing your nation. So if you get time to represent the national team, it’s something amazing,” he remarked.
