Ghanaian forward David Accam says he is hopeful of continuing his progress, following a strong start to the 2019 Major League Soccer season.
The 28-year-old has scored three goals and laid on two assists in four MLS appearances this term – an impressive return for someone who admits that he didn’t expect to see much game time for his team Philadelphia Union.
"I have started the season well and I just need to keep improving and doing better," Accam is quoted by Graphic Sports Online.
"Soccer is a funny sport, I didn’t even expect to start before the season but now am starting and playing well and contributing positively to the team."
Accam’s form is a major relief given the injury struggles he has endured in recent years.
"My target for this season is to be healthy, fit and enjoy playing soccer again. Is been difficult two years with injuries and surgeries but am feeling much better now,"added the winger.
The Accra-born attacker is being spoken of a possible option for Black Stars coach James Kwesi Appiah ahead of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in June and July.
Accam made his debut for the senior Ghana national team in November 2014 and was a non-playing member of their squad at the 2015 AFCON a couple of months later.
He has not received any Ghana call-ups since the tournament in Equatorial Guinea.
