Abbey has featured and equipped himself well against Africa's finest, and the defender is hoping that his performances have caught admiring glances from teams in England's top-flight.
''I have been at Macclesfield four years, but it is not easy to spot good players in the Third Division,'' Abbey told Vanguard.
''I have been playing regularly here at the African Cup of Nations against big players, so I hope big teams can see that I can play at the highest level.''
Abbey also had high praise for Everton stopper Yobo, whom he credits as being responsible for his international call-up.
''I got my debut in the summer because Joseph talked to the coach about me.
''As a player he is one of the best in the world, or he will be. He never gets carried away, he wants to improve and he encourages everyone.''
