Ghana: Adomah Get's Excited Over Ghana's Honour

"This is going to be my first major tournament - Africa Cup of Nations and it is a privilege to play for your motherland, it is just unbelievable, actually am speechless," Adomah told local radio, Citi FM after the final squad and numbers was released on Wednesday.

Albert Adomah feels honoured to have made Ghana's team for the Africa Cup of Nations and is also buzzing with his jersey number, 10 shirt.

Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah included Bristol City player to the 23-man squad in the final list of the month.

"I am so happy that I am part of the 23 man squad."

Adomah, who will be wearing the number 10 shirt is determined to make an impact for the team.

"Obviously, it's a major tournament and this is my first time of playing in a major tournament and I am actually looking forward to it, I am just delighted."

Despite that fact that the shirt number comes with some expectation for those obsessed with numbers in football, he believes a player's contribution is the most important ingredient required.
