England born-Ghanaian striker who plies his trade for London club Arsenal has confirmed he is open to playing for the Black Stars of Ghana.
During an interview on The Beautiful Game podcast, the Arsenal youngster was vivid in his explanation and intentions of playing for the Ghana Black Stars when asked about the nationality switch that will see him play for the Black Stars.
“Of course, it is a possibility. I’m open to both, playing for Ghana and playing for England as well,” Nketiah told The Beautiful Game podcast.
“It’s always good to have the opportunity to potentially do that.”
“I will sit down with my family & take the final decision at the end of the season. My parents are both Ghanaian. It’s a possibility. I am open to both–playing for Ghana or England happy they’ve qualified for World Cup. I know players like Partey so I am happy for them,” the youngster added.
The Ghana Football Association has started the process of getting European-born Ghanaian players to feature for the Black Stars at the World Cup in Qatar.
His Ghanaian team-mate Thomas Partey has also piled the pressure on the youngster who now is keen to make the move to playing for the Black Stars with the 2022 World Cup in Qatar looming.
Nketiah’s latest statement reveals the FA is on track in their quest to get these players, and Hudson-Odoi could be the next high-profile player to switch nationality.
