“It is every footballers dream to play for his country and my dream has come to pass. I have worked hard for this opportunity and for the past month I have been in touch with the head coach of the Hawks [Tom Saintifiet] and he gave me the assurance that he will invite me for next month qualifier and I believe that my hard work and the platform given to me by Hearts of Oak has earned me that call up,” Aguidi said.
