Italy-based midfielder Afriyie Acquah says he had a feeling he was going to score in Saturday’s decisive 2013 Nations Cup qualifier against Malawi.
The on-loan Parma player connected Andre Ayew’s cross on four minutes for Ghana’s 1-0 win over the Flames at the Civo Stadium.
“When I was entering the pitch, I had a right feeling it was going to be my day,” Acquah told MTNFootball.com
“I took a lot of inspiration from the way the coach called him and into the team and that made me strong.
“I told my agent Oliver Arthur I feel like I have won a CAF Award.”
Acquah was handed a last minute call-up into the Ghana squad after Udinese ace Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu picked up an injury.
The 20-year-old has now earned his second international cap.
