Dutch football prospect Myron Boadu claims he was never approached by the Ghana Football Association before committing his international future to the Netherlands.

The 19-year-old, born in Amsterdam to Ghanaian parents, was eligible to play for the Black Stars and the Oranje.

The in-form AZ Alkmaar striker made his debut in November and scored in the 5-0 win over Estonia.

''No actually not. Me, my parents and my agent have never had a call or anything. So I didn’t have to choose. In the end it all went quickly with Oranje,'' he told  AZ website

Boadu was gearing up to play in the Euro 2020 championship after being named in Netherlands provisional squad.

He is disappointed the tournament has been pushed back a year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

''That is a shame, of course. But health is the most important thing. The pre-selection does show that the national coach has confidence in me,'' he added.
