Jonathan Mensah gives roll call about players who were born in Europe but are currently playing for Ghana
Jonathan Mensah, a player for Ghana, talked about players born in Europe who change their nationality to play for Ghana before the FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The Ghana Football Association just said that six players changed their nationality in June. Tariq Lamptey of Brighton, Inaki Williams of Athletic Club, Stephan Ambrosius, Patrick Pfeiffer, and Ransford-Yeboah Konigsdorffer, all of whom were born in Germany, have all agreed to play for Ghana.
Last month, Mohammed Salisu of Southampton also said he would play for Ghana.
The Ghana FA is still talking to Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi and Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah about switching their nationality before the Mundial.
“It’s always good for the country, but as a player, I don’t have a with which I do have my thoughts. Sometimes, you have to put things into perspective and all that, but people on the outside will also worry about your not being there for qualifiers.
“That does happen sometimes. Some people come to the qualifiers but don’t play in the tournament itself. But you know I’m neither a coach nor a member of the management.”
“As a player, I’ve just been trying to do my best for my club. If I’m asked to join the national team, I’ll go and help the team, and it’s good that they want to play for Ghana.”
Ghana is back at the world’s biggest event after missing out in Russia last year.
The Black Stars will play against Portugal, South Korea, and Uruguay. They will start their attack on Portugal.
