Former England U18 star Tariqe Fosu switches nationality to play for Ghana

Published on: 07 October 2020

English born Ghanaian Tarique Fosu has decided to represent Ghana at the international level after honouring coach C.K Akonnor's call up for the friendlies against Mali and Qatar.

The 24-year-old, who represented England at youth levels could make his debut for the Africans on Friday, when Ghana plays Mali in Antalya, Turkey in the first of two friendlies.

Fosu first agreed to play for Ghana after meeting the Black Stars coach early this year, and was handed his maiden call up for the AFCON qualifiers against Sudan in March but following the outbreak of COVID-19, the games were postponed delaying his debut.

The Brentford winger joined the team for the first time on Tuesday after switching nationalities to play for the African side.

The London born player will be hoping to make his debut for the Black Stars in the friendlies against Mali and Qatar on Friday and Monday respectively.

He joins 18 other players in camp as coach Akonnor prepares his squad ahead of competitive international games in November.

The team will hold another training on Wednesday as preparations continue for Friday’s game against the Eagles of Mali
