Southampton Star Salisu Finally Agrees To Play For Ghana

Southampton defender Mohammed Salisu is now willing to represent the Black Stars after initially turning down overtures from the Ghana Football Association.

According to Ghanaweb.com, Salisu has informed his family that he is ready to play for the Black Stars in the world cup play–offs against the Super Eagles of Nigeria.


The 22-year–old reportedly turned down the chance to represent Ghana at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon where the West Africans crashed out in the group stage.

Veteran football administrator Alhaji Grusah also recently stated that Salisu has completely shut the door on Ghana.

But the defender has now made himself for the highly contests billed to hold in March.

Ghana and perenial rivals Nigeria will come face-to-face over two legs between March 23 and 29 for a place at the 2022 World Cup finals in Qatar.

    No be Salisu of southampton? Calamity Salisu? I don’t know what all the noise is for about this guy. Na average defender. Watch southampton games. Very jittery and error-prone defender.
    E no fit make Ghana starting eleven. Djiku, Amartey and Mensah are better than him.

      That is not the [email protected], how did Ghana FA manage to convince him chap chap?…

      NFF should learn and stop the dark shadows behind players switch to play for their father land, esp top talents as Lookman, Olise, Ejaria, Eze, Tomori, Jordan, et al. Bring in Dennis, Dessers, Amoo, Bassey, and better gooal keepers without any monetary or contractual conditions attached.

      NFF act fast, … Enough is enough! Pls and pls

      • He doesn’t have daul nationality, he just felt playing for Ghana is a waste of his time but convinced by the possibility of playing at the world cup

    It’s cuz WC is coming….Why didn’t he say this before Afcon…Rubbish..

  • Of cos all country should get their very best to prosecute the play off. If Nigeria like let them allow bad agent influence to affect the selection.

    By my experience we don’t learn easily from past experience in Nigeria.

    We also like wuruwuru way to success.
