I don’t mind starting from the bench; I will always be ready to help the Black Stars – Antoine Semenyo

Published on: 23 March 2023

Ghana striker, Antoine Semenyo has disclosed that he doesn’t mind starting games for the Black Stars from the substitute bench.

The AFC Bournemouth striker has been part of the Ghana national team since last year.

He has however not been the ideal starting number 9 for the Black Stars.

On Thursday, March 23, Antoine Semenyo climbed off the Black Stars bench and scored in injury time to give Ghana a narrow 1-0 win over Angola in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

Speaking in his post-match interview, the former Bristol City talisman said he is not obsessed about starting the next Ghana game because he scored today.

According to him, he only wants to prepare well to be ready to help the team in the next game.

“It doesn’t really make a difference. I always have to make sure I’m ready,” Antoine Semenyo said.

Up next for Ghana in the 2023 AFCON qualifiers, the Black Stars will take on Angola on March 27, in Luanda.
