Adomah ready to share in goalscoring duties



Abu Dhabi, UAE -

The Black Stars final squad named on Wednesday included Albert Adomah, who missed the chance to play in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea under the tutelage of Goran Stevanovic.

It was second time lucky for the Bristol City player on Wednesday night when the official list had him going to South Africa. "I feel honoured that this is happening right now. I'm speechless, if I'm going to be honest."

He had worked hard for it, he said, but it still has still not sunk in. "It is tough to compete with such great players all the time and that is why when results come through sometimes you feel humbled by it all."

Speaking at the Viceroy Hotel where the team is housed, Adomah also spoke of his disposition from the tactical point of view. "I am a winger and my job is to create and make sure the balls go in for goals to be scored."

However, with Ghana notorious for relying on midfield to provide a chunk of its goals, does the man making his first African Cup trip feel pressure?

"I can score but when I do score it's a bonus! My job is to create so I don't put pressure on myself."

The 25 year old has seen his popularity soar among his club mates and fans, who are not used to their Championship players getting callups for major continental tournaments.
