Ghana FA Gives Up On Nketiah Pursuit Ahead 2022 World Cup

The Ghanaian Football Association (GFA) have given up on their attempts to persuade Arsenal forward Eddie Nketiah to switch allegiance to Ghana and possibly play for the Black Stars at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

Nketiah will not be at the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar as he has declined the Black Stars’ invitation after he couldn’t get a call-up to the Three Lions of England ahead of the World Cup in Qatar.

According to Ghanasoccernet, Nketiah indicated his interest to play for the Black Stars in August, prompting the GFA to make moves to secure his services.

Nketiah who was born in Britain is England’s all-time U-21 top scorer with 16 goals in 17 games.

Ghana are in Group H alongside Portugal, Uruguay, and South Korea while England are in Group B together with Wales, Iran, and the United States of America.

The 2022 FIFA World Cup will take place between November 20 and December 18, 2022.

    Ghana you can lend Moffi or Boniface or Dessers to World Cup so that you will support your scoring thoughts.

    • @Hassan Tia do you really think Dessers is a world beater? even the boniface guy. I mean even moffi this is just current form. Non of these 3 players can bench any Ghana attacker let us be honest.
