Ghana set to pursue Hudson-Odoi, Eddie Nketiah and Tariq Lamptey switches after World Cup qualification

The England-born pair could include for the Black Stars at the International get-together in Qatar the this year 

Ghana's team for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar could be supported by the expansion of Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi and Brighton and Hove Albion defender Tariq Lamptey, Football Association communications chief Henry Asante Twum has expressed.

As of late, the team, along with Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah, have been connected to a potential change of international loyalty toward the West African nation, who, playing under caretaker manager Otto Addo, pipped Nigeria to a World Cup ticket, in Abuja on Tuesday.

The Qatar qualification has increased the International switch hypothesis, with GOAL exclusively writing about Thursday that Hudson-Odoi, who has three senior caps for England where he was brought into the world to Ghanaian parents, is thinking about making the huge changeover in front of the World Cup finals.

GFA communications director Twum addressed Citi TV about their advantage in the Premier League players.

“Assuming it is that we get up tomorrow and the new manager of the Black Stars needs Tariq [Lamptey], Hudson-Odoi, whoever is accessible, we will take a gander at the actions and the chance of getting them. On the off chance that it is inside our compass, we seek after it," Asante Twum has told Citi TV. 

“The new regulation for ethnicity switch is that you should be [three] years further from your last game [from the association you need to switch from], so it actually intends that if today, Hudson played for England [three] years before, we will take a gander at the month [in which] he played, and assuming it is by and large two years, he has each option to switch identity."

Hudson-Odoi, who last included for England in November 2019, is qualified to switch International allegiance in November this year, for what will be a long time from his last appearance for The Three Lions, and with perfect timing for the World Cup which runs between November 21 and December 18.

Recently, the winger and his folks held gatherings with Ghana specialized consultant and before Newcastle manager Chris Hughton in Acca concerning his international future. 

In the course of the last year, the 21-year-old has visited Ghana two times, meeting national president Nana Akufo-Addo, GFA president Kurt Okraku and serve for sports Mustapha Ussif. 

The Black Stars will figure out the personality of their World Cup bunch stage opponents on Friday.
