Ghana is set to miss out on AZ Alkmaar forward, Myron Boadu who has been in scintillating form having recorded 13 goals and 10 assists in 21 games for the Eredivisie side this season.

The 18-year old born to Ghanaian parents in Amsterdam joined the AZ Academy in 2013 before marking his debut for the reserve side in 2016.

He has since battled with injuries having missed out most of the 2017/18 season before making his professional debut in the last game of the 2017/18 Eredivisie season against PEC Zwolle.

Myron Boadu became the youngest player to score for AZ in the Dutch League aged 17years 212 days.

He was later sidelined for seven months with injury after a colliding with a Feyenoord player in September last year.

The teen prodigy since returning from injury has established himself as a key player for the side, scoring seven and assisting five times in the Dutch top tier league so far.

In the Europa league, Myron Boadu scored twice and assisted three in the qualifying round before recording four goals and two assists in four Group games so far.

Despite representing the Netherlands at the various youth levels, there was slim hope that the teen sensation could feature Ghana at the senior side.

Unfortunately for the West African country, Netherlands head coach Ronald Koeman has called up the 18-year old for their next two European championship qualifying games against Northern Ireland and Estonia.

He follows the footsteps of Lyon forward, Memphis Depay who chose the Netherlands under similar circumstances.
