Sumaila 'humbled' with Ghana debut



Ghana defender Rashida Sumaila has described the experience of making an appearance for his country as humbling.

The 20-year-old played just ten minutes as Ghana bat Sudan 3-1 away in Omdurman in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers, but it meant the universe to him.

"This is nice, very nice," the Dwarfs centre-back told supersport.com, saying: "I am very humbled by this and trust me it will also push me to do more so I get more time."

The 2011 All Africa Games champion has been getting Ghana callups since last October, but with more established ahead of him in the pecking order, the man currently on loan at Kotoko was bidding his time.

"I know it has been some time but patience is good because it makes you appreciate what it means to play for the nation when you finally get the opportunity."

Indeed, having been part of the provisional squad to play for Ghana at the last Afcon in South Africa, Sumaila was dropped after the team camp in the United Arab Emirates.

"I am never bitter about that. As a player you cannot always make it into a team when you want. You just have to work harder all the time," he says.

Rashid Sumaila is scheduled to join Mamelodi Sundowns this summer.
