Midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu says he’s not worried about starting Friday’s World Cup qualifier against Zambia from the bench.
The Udinese ace faces stiff competition from the heart of midfield following the return of Michael Essien.
With Rabiu Mohammed likely to get the nod due to his impressive displays for the team since the 2013 African Cup of Nations, Badu is unlikely to get a starting role in Friday’showdown at the Baba Yara stadium.
But the 23-year-old says he is not concerned from starting the game from the bench.
“It’s the manager who decides. The most important thing is whoever starts we have to think about the interest of the nation,” Badu told Radio XYZ.
“I am ever ready for any role whether I start from the bench or start the game, the country’s interest comes before our personal interest.
Agyemang-Badu added: “The most important thing is if I get the chance to come on the pitch I will prove it. I am relaxed and looking forward to the game.
“This is an important game for us, it is the dream of every footballer to go to the World Cup so we are focused because we want to achieve that dream.”
The Ghanaians require a win or at worst a draw to advance to the crucial final play-offs.
