‘We’re keen to scout good Ghanaian players born abroad to play for Black Stars’ – Ghana FA president Kurt Okraku


Ghana Football Association president, Kurt Okraku says the association is keen on scouting top Ghanaian players born abroad to play for the Black Stars.

The GFA announced that five players who were born in abroad have agreed to play for Ghana starting with the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Angola in September.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) is delighted to announce that Inaki Williams (Athletic Bilbao), Tariq Lamptey (Brighton and Hove Albion), Stephen Ambrosius (Hamburger SV), Ransford-Yeboah Koningsdorffer (Hamburger SV) and Patric Pfeiffer (SV Damstadt 98) are now available for selection by the Black Stars Technical team.

This follows exhaustive engagements between the leadership of the GFA, the players and their parents in the last few months.

The players are therefore available for selection in our upcoming International fixtures including the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.

‘’The availability of these players’ means a lot to the Ghana Football Association and the Technical team of the Black Stars’’ President Edwin Simeon-Okraku told ghanafa.org.

‘’We have always maintained that we will not limit ourselves to only a small group of players but would scout top talents across the globe who are ready to sacrifice for the nation and to take us to the next level‘’

‘’This gives the Technical team more options to choose from adding to our continuous desire to improve the team’’

‘’Coach Otto Addo and his Technical team will continue to monitor and asses them for future assignments including the September games and the FIFA World Cup in Qatar’’ President Simeon-Okraku added.
