Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu has lauded the performance of the national team’s newcomers in the 5-0 win over Ethiopia earlier this month.
The Black Stars trounced their East African visitors in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, which featured no less than four debutantes in the starting team.
Coach James Kwesi Appiah was not afraid to put his faith in the young players ahead of the likes of Agyemang-Badu, Christian Atsu and Mubarak Wakaso.
And the Udinese midfielder has expressed his admiration for the way the youngsters performed in the famous white and black.
“All the new players did so well and I was so pleased their performance,” Agyemang-Badu told GTV SpotLight, as quoted by GHANASoccernet.
“They all played to my satisfaction especially the left back [Lumor Agbenyanor], he was so composed. I hope they can give us more of what we saw that day.
“With [Ebenezer] Ofori, I wasn’t so surprised because I know the qualities he possesses after seeing him first hand in training during the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.”
