Berekum Chelsea winger Solomon Asante wants to explode at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
The former Stoke City-pursuit, 22, will be among Ghana’s key players in South Africa from January 19.
Asante’s gliding pace which lacerates defences, adhesive skills and deft combined with incredible trickery on the flanks will bring up twitch of excitement in the stands.
“The AFCON is a bigger platform for me to excel and I believe Africa and the rest of the world will see my talent,” he told Ghanasoccernet.com.
The former Fetteh Feyenoord Academy graduate came off the bench to play part in the Black Stars’ 3-0 mauling of Egypt in a warm-up game on Thursday in Abu Dhabi.
“It was really a good exercise for the team and I believe we will continue it in Sunday’s game against Tunisia who appear to be a more formidable opposition.
The West African giants are parading a youthful squad that has an average of 24.35 and the pocket-size winger believes the youthful nature of the team could be a key factor to Ghana’s campaign.
“We have a good squad with a blend of youth and experience and I believe this will help us a lot in our bid to make history in South Africa.
