Black Stars head coach Otto Addo announced the most recent additions to the Ghana National Men's Football Team today during a Meet the Press event at the Ghana Football Association Headquarters.

Asare is one of three goalkeepers selected for the 26-man roster: Joseph Wollacott and Lawrence Ati-Zigi.

After dethroning veteran Ibrahim Danlad from the starting lineup for Kotoko in the 2023–2024 Ghana Premier League, 25-year-old Asare, a former player for the Accra Lions, has excelled for the team.

He has played in 17 league games, conceded 10 goals, and kept 10 clean sheets. Most recently, he played goalkeeping in Kotoko's thrilling 2-0 victory over archrival Accra Hearts of Oak.
