He was the hero for Ghana in the final game against Uganda after scoring twice to clinch a fourth title for the Satellites.

The Hearts of Oak man,19, has eyes on breaking into the Black Stars team after the remarkable achievement.

“Am very happy, I am honored to lead the team to win the Cup of Nations,” he was speaking to TV3.

“I have written my name in the history books as one of the captains to do that and now I want to be in the Black Stars.
