Haminu Draman burst into the Ghana national side on the eve of the 2006 CAF Africa Cup of Nations, and at the tournament in Egypt he impressed with his incisive play on the wing. He has been a regular in the Black Stars squad ever since, featuring at the 2006 FIFA World Cup™ and at two further continental championships. His primary asset is his pace and his ability to whip in crosses. His club career has taken him to Serbia, Turkey and Russia, where he is now on the books of Lokomotiv Moscow.
The 24-year-old Draman played at domestic club Heart of Lions before being recommended to the Serbian club by the then-Ghana national coach Ratomir Dujkovic, who steered him towards his old club Red Star Belgrade. He made a dream debut in Serbia in 2005, scoring just a minute after coming on as an 88th minute substitute, but he was then restricted to fleeting appearances throughout the season for the former European champions. Dujkovic was also the catalyst for his inclusion in the Black Stars line-up, debuting Draman while in Tunisia on pre-tournament preparations before the Nations Cup in Egypt. Draman played his first game against Togo and then again against Tunisia before featuring in three matches at the tournament.
After the 2006 FIFA World Cup, where Draman scored against the USA in Nuremburg to help his team become the only African country to progress past the first round, he moved to Genclerbirligi in Turkey and after six months was signed at Lokomotiv Moscow. The Russian club loaned him out last year to FK Kubin, where Draman flourished and was again able to verify his potential. He has since returned to the Russian capital at the start of the new Russian season, which got underway after he had played at the 2010 CAF Africa Cup of Nations finals in Angola.
