Ghana striker Raphael Dwamena insists that the national team has a great future despite the failure to qualify for the 2018 World Cup.
The Black Stars finished third in Group E behind Egypt and Uganda, but Dwamena, who is still a relative newcomer to the team, believes the World Cup failure could be a blessing in disguise.
“We got a great future with the new players in the team. We are there for each other as teammates and we have to stick together as a team to achieve our aim. We can do everything if we stick together as a team,” the 24-year-old is quoted by Finder Sports.
“The future is bright for the Black Stars because we have a lot of young players. We have to work hard and we have a long way to go.
“There are a lot of things ahead of us being the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, World Cup qualifiers and many more.
“I want to do my best when I represent my nation. I am not only looking forward to scoring goals for the Black Stars but I am looking to win trophies with the national team.”
Ghana will now turn their attention to the qualifiers for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, with their next match away to Kenya in March 2018.
