Ghana's No. 1

Black Stars winger Tariqe Fosu opens up on growing in Ghana

Published on: 23 November 2020

English born Ghana international Tariqe Fosu has revealed that he knows a lot about the country after spening most of his childhood in Kumasi. 

Fosu was born in England and represented the youth teams of the Three Lions but decided to pledge his senior international allegiance to the country of his parents.

Fosu disclosed he grew up in the Ashanti Region where he schooled at Ridge and has a lot of knowledge about the Black Stars before gaining his first call-up.

"My grandparents are from Ghana and they live in Ghana now. They are from Kumasi so I love Ghana," he told the GFA media.

"I wasn’t born in Ghana but I moved here when I was three. I schooled here at Ridge school in Kumasi so I know the country well.

"Growing up in Ghana, I always supported the team and when I got the call-up, I was more than delighted to come. I don’t think there’s a stereotype of European players because, after my experience, there has been nothing but good vibes and good experience."

Tariqe Fosu earned his first international cap in an international friendly between the Black Stars and Mali last month and has since made four appearances for Ghana.
