Ghana midfielder Mubarak Wakaso ready to explode on his debut at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Espanyol player was roped in by coach Kwesi Appiah in November after impressing for the Spanish La Liga side.
He scored on his debut against Cape Verde in the 1-0 win friendly match played in Lisbon.
The hard-tackling midfielder has since settled in nicely and gunning for a starting in Sunday’s opener against DR Congo.
“This is not my first African competition for the nation but it’s the first time for the Black Stars,” Wakaso told www.ghanafa.org on Friday in Port Elizabeth after training.
“I don’t take it as a difficult thing because it’s part of my work.
“What I need to do or what we need to do is concentrate; get what we need on the pitch to get our three points, that’s the most important thing.”
