Annan started his football in Achimota Zongo (a suburb of Accra) with a youth side called Shooting Stars and later joined Feyenoord Academy now West African Football Academy (WAFA).
"It’s a great feeling whenever you are invited to the senior national team. As a player, it is a dream to represent my country. I have been doing my best at Kotoko which I believe caught the attention of the technical team of the Black Stars''.
''I’m honoured to be among the players called up and I’m hoping to play my part towards the success of the team. I’m optimistic that if I remain consistent, I can get a shot into the final squad for the Total Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt in June''.Annan said in a CAFonline interview concerning his reaction to the news of his call up to the Black Stars squad for the Kenya AFCON 2019 qualifier.
However Annan on his career , revealed he would have gone into the field of Information Technology if he was not into football, because of the soft spot for that discipline as well.
The 24-year old cited former Ghanaian goalkeeper, Joe Carr as his role model and internationally, Edwin Van Der Sar of Netherlands and Manchester United fame.
His club Asante Kotoko are on assignment to salvage a must win against Zesco United in their final group game in Ndola, Zambia.
Felix Annan's exploits has been crucial for Asante Kotoko’s journey in the Total CAF Confederation Cup and is optimistic of a victory;
"We believe in our abilities and knowing only a win will take us through, we are going to Zambia with a plan to beat Zesco and seal qualification to the next round of the CAF Confederation Cup''.
''We believe we have a chance and we can do it. Too bad we failed to kill it at home against Al Hilal, but the 1-1 draw was good for us and we will build on it. Anything short of total victory and we will kiss our participation in the competition goodbye''.
Kotoko touched down in Lusaka late Thursday afternoon and already in Ndola for the final group stage game against Zesco United on Sunday March 17.
Meanwhile, the Black Stars of Ghana will be welcoming the Harambee Stars of Kenya the following week on March 23 and Annan is looking to cement his place in the national team.
