Ghana Players Abroad

’Don’t play for Ghana because of World Cup’ – Adam Kwarasey warns Ghanaian born players abroad



Former Black Stars goalkeeper, Adam Kwarasey has fired a big warning to foreign-based players of Ghanaian root who only intend to play for the country at the World Cup.

A number of players born abroad with Ghanaian decent have been cited by the  media as possible inclusions to Ghana’s squad after the team’s qualification for the World Cup later this year.

The Ghana Football Association are reported to have convinced Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi, Tariq Lamptey from Brighton and the William brothers, Inaki and Nico to play for the Black Stars.

However, Kwarasey who was born in Norway and made his debut for Ghana in 2011, is entreating the players to be fully committed.

“They need to come for the right reason I’ll say. I know they probably want to experience the World Cup but I hope they come because they want to represent Ghana and not because they were not selected by another country,” the FC Oslo Sporting director told JoySports in an interview.

“I think that’s number one – they need to be there because they want to play their hearts out for Ghana. Number two is hard because it’s been a while since I have been around, so I don’t really know how things are done in camp, but adjust quickly and do your best basically.”

In the 2012 Afcon qualifications, Kwarasey made his debut for Ghana against Swaziland. He remained the Black Stars’ starting goalkeeper in the competition, where they placed fourth.

Ghana will play their fourth FIFA World Cup tournament in Qatar later this year and are paired in Group H alongside European giant Portugal, former World Champions Uruguay and South Korea.
