Majeed Waris tips Accam for World Cup place

By on

downloadBlack Stars forward Abdul Majeed Warris has backed David Accam of Helsingborg to get a place in the team’s final squad for the World Cup in Brazil.

The former Valenciennes player, who played with Accam at the Right To Dream Academy in their formative years, says the Swedish-based player has been in good form this season helping his club in the league and especially in the Swedish Cup and with his regular appearances, meets the criteria given by Black Stars head coach Kwesi Appiah.

” He has had a great season in Sweden and if you look at the basis of current form for the coach’s selection, then Accam deserves a place in the final team. He has been playing and scoring and it is great that he has been called up but the final choice is for the coach.

However, I know David will come in and work really hard”, said Warris in an interview with GH One Television’s sports programme “The Game”.

Accam has scored  6 goals in 9 matches since November 2013 but Warris believes Accam can provide a very important spark to the Black Stars attack.

” He is very quick and he loves taking on players. That is how he has been since I knew him from our time at Right To Dream. He likes running a lot and ha can be a very good threat to defenders.”

Accam is part of the 26-man provisional squad list named by coach Kwesi Appiah for the World Cup ahead of the team’s training camp in Ghana and Holland in May.
