Godwin Bentil optimistic of success in Europe; hopes for national call-up

Fast rising Ghanaian striker Godwin Bentil hopes to gain a call-up into the national team, following a promising career in Europe.

Speaking exclusively to Power Sports Editor, Nana Prempeh, on Power Sports Extra Monday, Bentil, who plays as a forward for French club Le Havre AC, revealed it is the dream of every player to represent their national team.

“… And I’m not an exception,” he added and intimated he wants his call-up into the national team to be on merit as he is confidence of a successful season despite anticipated hurdles.

The Ghanaian professional footballer scored his first goal for the 2020/2021 season last Saturday.

Bentil, 19, netted four goals in seven games for the youth team of Le Havre last season.

Bentil joined Le Havre in 2018 on a four-year deal from Ghanaian side Attram De Visser Soccer Academy and has so far greatly impressed the technical staff by banging in six goals and assisting four in 11 games in 2019.

Reacting to his success in the French league, the young footballer said, discipline, hard work, dedication, and training has been the driving force for his career.

He was hopeful his name would be forever be remembered as one of the greatest footballers to have lived on earth.

He added the training and discipline he received at Attram De Visser Academy made his stay at the current team much easier and flexible.

He also commended his team for the support he has been given over the past two years.

“I want to be like Godwin Attram, Robert Lewandowski, Sergio Aguero and other great footballers in Europe,” Bentil hinted.

He added, “I always think of goals anytime I’m given the opportunity to prove what I have. I know and believe hard work pays.”

Bentil assured Ghanaians “what they saw in Abedi Pele, Tony Yeboah and Asamoah Gyan, I’m here to do more so I need their support in prayers.”
