“It was very amazing for me,” he told the club’s media department.
“I mean, I’ve been watching Ghana since a very young age. I mean, it’s one of my mother’s favorite African teams.
“So for me, it was a very good experience for me to actually start the game and finish it. I learned a lot throughout that whole game. Like I said it was amazing.”
Brooks say coach Broos gave him the confidence to do well.
“No, he made it very easy for me,” he continued.
“I mean, the day before, he said to me, I’m must just go and play like I play at the club. Play with confidence, don’t be too scared, do what I do. And verything will come well.”
