Great Olympics head coach, Annor Walker, has backed Maxwell Abbey-Quaye to secure a place in the Black Stars ahead of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations [Afcon].

The young enterprising striker has started the season in fine form, with 6 goals in his opening six games.

Annor Walker is confident Abbey-Quaye can gate-crash Ghana’s AFCON squad if he continues with his impressive goalscoring form

“I told him there’s no competition in the striking position at the National team, so if he can improve himself a bit, he can make the squad for the AFCON,” Walker said as reported by Citi Sports.

“So he listened to me and has been working seriously, which has helped him this season.

“I expect him to do more before the call-ups come in January and if he can score 10 goals before then, there’s no coach who would not invite him to play for the national team,” he added.

The delayed Afcon tournament will take place from January 9 to February 6 in Cameroon.

Meanwhile, Ghana will be aiming to win the trophy to end its 39 years trophy drought under Milovan Rajevac.
