2022 World Cup: Arsenal striker ready to play for Ghana


Arsenal striker, Edward Nketiah has admitted he is open to switching his international allegiance from England to Ghana ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

The 22-year-old was born to Ghanaian parents in London, but has represented the country of his birth in age group competitions.

However, Nketiah is still eligible to feature for either nation at senior level.

With Ghana beating Nigeria to a place at the World Cup, talks of a change of international preference have increased.

“My parents are both Ghanaian, so of course, it’s a possibility. I am open to both – playing for Ghana or England,” Nketiah told The Beautiful Game podcast.

“Like you said, I’ve played for the youth teams so naturally when I was obviously younger, they called me up to go play for them.

“Being from Ghana, you are obviously happy they have qualified for the World Cup. I know players like [Thomas] Partey [and] I am happy for them as well.

“It’s always good to have that opportunity to potentially do that,” he said.
