Ghana’s Black Stars Get Nketiah Boost

Ghana’s Black Stars Get Nketiah Boost

Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah alongside Fikayo Tomori were dropped from the Three Lions of England squad to face Italy in the Euro 2024 qualifiers today (Tuesday).

Nketiah recently made his senior debut for England in an international friendly against Australia.

However, hopes of a first competitive appearance for the Three Lions was quashed as he left out of the squad to play the European champions.

This decision marks the end of Nketiah’s international assignment with the England national team in October.

The 24-year-old was initially left out by England coach Southgate in the previous international window for games against Scotland and Ukraine.

However, this latest development could serve as boost to Ghana’s pursuit of Nkekiah as he is yet to feature in a competitive game for England.

The West African country has not hidden their desire to have the Gunners striker in the Black Stars squad.

This season he has scored two goals in eight league appearances for Mikel Arteta’s side.

It remains to be seen if Ghana will be lucky enough to convince Nketiah to turn out for the four-time AFCON winners, especially as they prepare for the 2023 AFCON and 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

    It’s a huge shame….FIKAYO TOMORI would have been SE First name on team sheet for every game had he chosen NIGERIA over England

    GARETH SOUTHGATE just like GERNOT ROHR, ROBERTO MARTINEZ and JOSE PASEIRO will never WIN anything meaningful but continue to cause heartache for Football fans.

    How can you drop AC MILAN first choice CB and go with GUEHI of CRYSTAL PALACE, calamity MAGUIRE and LEWIS DUNK of BRIGHTON???? Only a clueless GS does that

    • Father Jp, it is not as if southgate has all the free hand to invite all the black players he wanted in this world.

      He has limited number of foreign players he must invites once the slots is exhausted he has no option that to invite more citizen even if they below the quality level of the left out foreigner. You must be very very very exceptional in position like Saka before you can lock that position to your self. Just watch what will happen to Eze and co.

    • Sentiment and racial discrimination at work from southgate, pls
