The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has been working tirelessly to convince players with dual nationality to switch international allegiance.
With barely four months left for the start of the FIFA World Cup in Dubai 2022, the president of the Ghana FA Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku has confirmed there has been a breakthrough with negotiations of convincing foreign-born players to join Black Stars team in Dubai.
For instance, former Germany U21 striker, Ransford-Yeboah Konigsdorffer has revealed why he switched nationality to play for Ghana at international level.
He said; “My father comes from Ghana; he would be very proud of me if I could now play for his fatherland. In addition, it is probably easier to become a national team player there,” he told German news outlet the Bild.
The young attacker joined Hamburg in the summer transfer window from Bundesliga III side Dynamo Dresden.
He added; “I would be willing to play for Ghana. I met Otto Addo last December before he was national coach. Since then we have been in close contact. I already take care of the Ghanaian passport. I would be happy if I could attend the next international matches in September.”
