Defender Abdul Razak Nuhu is confident he can secure the left-back position in the Black Stars ahead of the 2013 African Cup of Nations qualifier against Malawi.
Hea coach Kwesi Appiah kept faith with the 20-year after he impressed heavily in an international friendly against China last month.
With in-form Harrison Afful in the frame, the Stromsgodest left back must fight to be in the final squad expected to play the crucial first leg tie against The Flames at the Accra Sports stadium.
But the former Right to Dream Academy graduate is bracing himself for the challenge ahead.
“I know it’s going to be difficult but all that I am asking for is the opportunity,” Nuhu said
“It is my prayer that I am given the chance to prove my worth and do my best for people to judge me.”
Tunisia-based Harrison Afful is the likely candidates for the position after excelling for Esperance while Samuel Inkoom and Daniel Opare can also be used as make-shift for the position.
