“The only thing I can promise is that I’ll give my three hundred or four hundred percent to the nation, he said in an interview with Citi Sports’ Fentuo Tahiru Fentuo.

“I know it’s only one thing and it is the African Cup of Nations, so we will make sure that when we go back to the next AFCON, we will do our best to perform very well and die for the country,” he concluded.

The 28 year old has featured for the BlackStars sixty-one times, netting seventeen goals since making his debut on 5th September 2010. He is also Ghana’s highest goalscorer in the English Premier League with 25 goals.
