Orlando Pirates striker Kwame Peprah strongly believes he has performed well enough this past season to earn a call-up to the Ghanaian national team.
The 21-year-old has been in fine form for the Soweto giants this campaign, having found the back of the net nine times and assisted a further goal in 38 appearances across all competitions.
Peprah was one of the club’s standout performers in his debut campaign with Pirates and helped guide the Buccaneers to the Caf Confederation Cup final, where they were defeated by RS Berkane but it was not enough to earn him a place in the Black Stars squad.
The former King Faisal captain admits that he is disappointed not to have been called up to the national team as he felt he did enough to earn his spot.
“Looking at my stats and performances for Orlando Pirates this season, I think I have done enough to have a call-up,” Peprah said on Football Ghana.
“It’s also [about] time. The management and officials at the FA know best so I think in due time when it is my time, I will get a call-up.
“We went all out for the trophy. In the group stages, we came [out on] top. We went through the quarter- and semi-finals.
“When we got to the final and we were not able to be crowned champions, it was very disappointing. I still feel bad.
“I know next season we’ll win trophies for the club.”
