I have to build on my performance to win more caps– Jerome Opoku

Turkey based centre back Jerome Opoku is already looking ahead to more games for Ghana after making his second international appearance against Nigeria on Friday.

The London born player who is on loan at Istanbul Basaksehir was one of the star performers on the afternoon for Ghana in the 2-1 loss but for his red card.

Jerome made his debut in a 4-0 loss to the United States of America in October 2023 after he was handed a late call up in place of Alexander Djiku.

‘’The game against USA wasn’t too good at all; it was my first game too and the way we played as a team didn’t help me. I definitely should have done better in that game but compared to this game I think it’s something for me to build on and keep learning. I think this coach wants to play football, for me I like to play football also, not just going long, kicking long so I can bring out the quality of my game under this coach’’.

‘’I think the position I played today was key to my performance, as I said it depends on where I play and how we play and how I can bring out my quality so that definitely helped’’

‘’I want to just have to keep working hard and achieve the most with the national team. If I get another opportunity anytime I am on the pitch I want to do well and show my quality so just more caps for Ghana and keep improving as a player as a team collectively’’ he added.
