Alfred Duncan has not featured for the Black Stars for a year, yet his club career continues to go from strength to strength, and he’s started the Serie A season strongly with Sassuolo.

His consistency, prowess with his left foot, and presence in midfield have won him many admirers in Italy, and will have prompted increased expectations among supporters back home.

“It hurts that I have been ignored, because everyone wants to play international football,” he told KweséESPN.5

“It is a compliment to be considered good enough for your country, and all I can personally do is to make my case by playing well at club level.”

Duncan has certainly started the season strongly; he’s been a regular for fifth-placed Sassuolo in a manner that star man Thomas Partey has not managed at Atletico Madrid.

He’s also eclipsed another Ghanaian in Serie A, Afriyie Acquah, who started the Black Stars’ last match in Kenya

It is a start to the season that has Duncan, the former Inter Milan player, buzzing with a lot of confidence.

“Normally, in the past, I play two good games and then my level drops the next,” he added.new nike nfl jerseys cheap

“This time, the level has been consistent, and everyday I feel better about myself. I get more minutes on the pitch, which works magic for any player.”
