Thomas Agyepong was substituted in the game against Benin due to injury

Black Stars winger, Thomas Agyepong, has said he is fit to face Tunisia in tonight’s Africa Cup of Nations game at the Ismailia Stadium.

Injury ruled him out of the last two games against Cameroon and Guinea-Bissau.

“Now I can say that I am fully fit and ready for the task ahead, I am feeling okay and working hard like any other player,” Agyepong stressed.

“I am very hopeful Ghanaians would see me back on the pitch to give my best to mother Ghana, as we aim at winning the continental trophy,” Agyepong stated.

Agyepong, who is having his debut Africa Cup of Nations, could not hide his joy as he expressed how happy he is to be making his debut and the level of support he has received from his senior colleagues.

“I have enjoyed a tremendous support from the senior players, which has helped me to [build] my confidence as a player,” he said.

“It has been great playing alongside experience players in the team and though I have sat out in the last couple of games, it had been great watching the team from the bench,” he added.

“It is good for my development as a young player and I know that the whole team including the technical brains are poised for our upcoming game against Tunisia, on Monday and I am sure we will get a win,” Agyepong predicted.

Agyepong sustained a heartbreaking injury in Ghana’s first Group game against Benin, in a match which ended in a 2-2 draw.Black Stars will take on the Cartage Eagles at the Ismailia stadium at 7pm on Monday, 8th July 2019.
