Ghana is set to follow the leads of Morocco and Nigeria in securing the services of their nationals in the diaspora.

President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) Kurt Okraku in an interview with TV3 has revealed his optimism in seeing new dual-nationals play for Ghana in next month’s AFCON 2022 qualifiers.

He mentioned that the GFA has already set up a committee to facilitate the process.

“Our FA has been very proactive, we have set up what we call the International Relations Committee led by my good self, “

“Our key responsibility is to scout everywhere in the world to look for Ghanaian players, put together their data and hand over such data to the technical directorate, Kurt is quoted.

The FA head was quick to add that the Black Stars have a very good team but the move is about making the team very competitive.

“We have a very good team, there are good players in the current squad. We want to make the squad even more competitive, for whichever reason we want to have players beyond the shores of Ghana.

“I’m sure if we assemble again in November for a competitive game, you will see a few faces coming through, already CK Akonnor has given a call up to Alexander Djiku who is a Ghanain but lives in France, he is very competitive and I’m sure he will add value to our national team”, Kurt Okraku said.

Ghana continues to monitor English premier league duo Eddie Nketiah and Tariq Lamptey, Dutch youth pair Brian Brobbey and Derrick Luckassen in securing the services for the West African country.
