‘I’m not African because I was born in Africa but because Africa was born in me’ – Daniel Kofi Kyereh


Ghana’s new darling boy Daniel Kofi Kyereh has expressed what makes him feel an African after his experience with the Black Stars team.

The Accra-born but German raised Ghana star says he’s not feeling African because he is born in Africa but because he feels Africa was born in him.

Daniel Kofi Kyereh; “I am not African because I was born in Africa but because Africa was born in me”, he wrote on social media.

Kofi Kyereh has walked into the hearts of many people in the world cup especially in Ghana with his dazzling display for the Black Stars team since his debut.

Though he hasn’t been able to cement his spot as a sure starter for Ghana, he’s definitely showed beyond doubt what he can when called upon.

He was part of the Ghana team that qualified for the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament and was in Qatar playing at the World Cup tournament for the Black Stars.

He made cameos in all the games at the group stages of the 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar coming on for the last 45 minutes against Uruguay.

A 2-0 win for Uruguay in their Group H decider with Ghana prevented the Black Stars from enacting any sort of revenge for their quarter-final loss at the 2010 World Cup, but this pulsating victory for La Celeste at the 2022 edition came with a heavy price.

South Korea’s 2-1 win over Portugal in the corresponding group stage decider saw them leapfrog both Uruguay and Ghana late on, meaning they’ll progress to the last 16, and send both of these sides home despite Uruguay’s victory.

The build-up to the match had been dominated by Luis Suarez’s handball right at the end of extra-time in their 2010 knockout match. Asamoah Gyan’s miss proved fatal for Ghana 12 years ago, but captain Andre Ayew, the only remaining player from the 2010 squad, couldn’t avenge.
