Coach Avram Grant says he gave Samuel Tetteh a debut Black Stars call up as a result of the WAFA youngster’s impressive performances with the Black Satellites and the home based Black Stars.

Speaking at a press conference to commemorate his one year anniversary as Black Stars coach, Grant stated that he looks out for special qualities in all Ghanaian players before they can get call ups into the senior national team.

“We always look out for players who are exceptional to give them an opportunity in the Black Stars”.

“For instance, I watched Samuel Tetteh at the U20 tournament in Senegal and I was very impressed with his performance. He also excelled with the CHAN team in their recent qualifiers”.

“This is why we gave him the opportunity to fight for a place in the Black Stars in our match against Comoros”, Grant said at the press conference held at the GFA Secretariat on Monday.
