LISTEN DEC 4, 2019

Ghana U-23 star, Evans Mensah has shared that his target after representing the Black Meteors at the 2019 CAF U-23 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament is to get a call-up into the senior national team.

The diminutive winger enjoyed a very good tournament in Egypt last month and managed to earn a spot on the team of the tournament even though Ghana failed to get into the finals.

In an interview with TV3, Evans Mensah who plays his club football in Finland for HJK Helsinki says his focus is now on making his way into the Black Stars team.

“The competition [CAF U-23 AFCON0 is played every four years and am 22 now, obviously I wouldn’t be eligible to play in the next edition”.

“Right now I am focusing on the Black Stars, I hope to get a chance with the senior team. It is not going to come easy but I need to work harder and make sure I take up the chance when it comes”, Mensah shared.

He is currently back in Finland with his HJK Helsinki side where he has already scored some amazing goals, attracting interest from several European clubs in the process.
