Moldovan giant FC Sheriff Tiraspol defender, Patrick Kpozo is in seventh heaven after making Ghana’s final 25-man squad for the upcoming 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Angola.
This is the first time the left-back has received a senior national team call-up to play for Ghana’s Black Stars after going through the youth ranks.
The former Inter Allies star, has been in fine form and has made the cut for Chris Hughton’s first Ghana squad.
Although he was included in the pre-World Cup squad, he missed the tournament after the list was trimmed down to 26 players for the competition in Qatar.
Kpozo will be competing with Gideon Mensah for the starting role at left-back due to the absence of injured Baba Rahman.
In a social media post, he shared his excitement and said, “It is an honour to represent the Senior National team of the Blackstars.”
Ghana will take on Angola on March 23 at the Baba Yara Stadium, with the reverse fixture scheduled to take place in Luanda on March 27.
The Black Stars are currently leading Group E of the qualifiers with four points, followed by Angola, the Central African Republic, and Madagascar.
