Head coach of the senior national team, C.K Akonnor says Jamie Leweling is one fine talent who has the potential to grow into a big player.

The teenager who plays for Greuther Furth was handed a debut call up for Ghana's 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sudan.

And Akonnor beleives Leweling is hope for the future.

"He is a young man who is all over the place with lots of teams interested in him because of what he has done.

"He is growing very fast. He just got a chance from the second team and now he is with the first team. He’s been a player I believe is a hope for the future.

"Leweling is one of the guys that we can have because he’s young, 19 years of age and he has had the chance to play for the German national team and so we are looking at how we can also get him on board to also help us in the future.

"He’s somebody I believe if not today, he’s going to be the hope for our future and that’s why he’s here" Akonnor added.

Coach Akonnor is seeking to continue with the teams flying start to the qualifiers following victories against South Africa and Sao Tome and Principe in November 2019.

The four-time Africa champions will play as guests to Sudan at the Cape Coast Stadium on Thursday, November 12, before making a trip to Khartoum for the return encounter five days later.
