Guard for Ghana Black Stars makes international debut in the team

The Ghanaian press has been giving its judgement of a policeman who played for the Ghanaian national team this weekend.

In 2016 Samuel Sarfo was one of the policemen deployed to provide security for the Black Stars during the Afcon qualifier against Rwanda in 2016.

But on Saturday he played for the national team against the US in a friendly match.

Sarfo retweeted the pictures to show his rapid transformation

The Black Stars lost 2-1 against the US on Saturday.

Despite the loss, the Ghanaian press has been encouraging of his efforts

His rise from protecting the team to representing them in just under a year is remarkable.

For the last nine minutes he spent on the pitch, Sarfo showed great composure at the back as he tried to prevent the USA centre-forwards from scoring.

The 26-year-old was an amateur footballer with local amateur side, Liberty Professionals FC.

However, the Sun reports that he joined the team after being called up following the withdrawals of experienced internationals, Alfred Nelson and Daniel Nii Adjei.
