Good News As Highly Rated Brighton Star Is Considering Playing For Ghana.

In relation to preparations for the 2022 world cup in Qatar there have been a lot of efforts made by the Ghana Football Association to ensure that the team is excellently prepared to do well in the tournament that is scheduled to take place later this year.

There have been invitations for some very good players plying their trade in Europe and having Ghanaian descent to switch their allegiance and come and play for the Black Stars. Players like Chelsea's Hudson Odoi and Mohammed Salisu who currently plays for Southampton have all been invited in recent weeks.

Another player who has also been invited and per the reports is considering playing for Ghana is Tariq Lamptey who plays for Brighton and Hove Albion in the English premier league.

Tariq Lamptey has represented England at youth levels but the Brighton & Hove Albion right-back is yet to earn a call-up to the senior team.

The 21-year-old full back was not named in England’s U-21 team for the upcoming international break and the England U-21 coach Carsley confirmed the decision to leave out the player was to give him time to decide on his international future after being approached by Ghana.

“There’s an issue over his [Tariq Lamptey] dual nationality. He’s had an approach [from Ghana]. It’s something he’s considering at the minute,” Carsley said as quoted by The Sun Newspaper.

This is a positive news for the Black Stars as Tariq Lamptey who has shown his worth over the years will bring a lot of quality to the squad. Ghanaians can afford to be very optimistic if players like Tariq and Hudson Odoi finally decide to play for Ghana.

Ghanaians have had a lot of heartaches in recent participations in the world cup most notably the 2014 world cup in Brazil however with a lot of steps been taken in the right direction both on and off the pitch Ghanaians can afford to dream once again.
