Aduana Stars goalkeeper Stephen Adams has described his Black Stars return as timely and says he is there to stay.
He has been named in Kwesi Appiah’s 25-man squad released on Friday for June’s 2014 FIFA World Cup double-header against Sudan and Lesotho on the road.
The 26-year-old earned his debut call-up three years ago when he was listed in Ghana’s provisional 2010 FIFA World Cup squad.
Adams joined the team their pre-tournament camping in France but was dropped for the finals in South Africa.
“The disappointment at the time helped boost my confidence rather and the lesson was that I needed to do more,” he told MTNFootball.com exclusively.
“I felt great when I heard the news and it has soared. It is really an honour to serve the national team and I don’t want to be out again.”
Adams return to the national team was facilitated by Norway-based Adam Larsen Kwarasey’s availability for the two assignments.
The latter is set to undergo an eye operation next week; ruling him out for June’s international duties.
“Even if two goalkeepers are going to be called I want to be among them. Kwarasey’s return will not be a problem for me. I’m going there to work hard and stay in the team.”
Adams was named Ghana Premier League Best Goalkeeper in 2010 when his side won the league.
