Probable Reason Why Hudson Odoi And Eddie Nketiah Have Still Not Joined The Black Stars Team

At this moment, the Black Stars team has more than enough to choose from ahead of the 2022 World Cup tournament, and that is quite astonishing looking at how the team has struggled to get the best squad in previous years.

Though there has been a high level of Inclusion when it comes to foreign-born players, there are some two top-class footballers from the English Premier League who have still not decided on joining the senior national team of Ghana.

These players who are proving adamant on switching nationality to play for Ghana's Black Stars are Callum Hudson Odoi and Eddie Nketiah.

We all know Callum Hudson Odoi to be one of Chelsea's most idolized strikers in recent times and the type who will do whatever it takes to bury the ball at the back of the net when given the chance.

Upon several requests to cajole him to join forces with Ghanaian team, Odoi seem to be dragging his feet on the request is fast timing out.

From the Arsenal football club, Eddi Nketiah is also a recognized Ghanaian man who can easily switch to play for despite having routes from England.

Similarly, Eddie Nketiah has also gone mute on his decision to play for the Black Stars and it's safe to say the Ghanaian football federation has almost given up on his chase.

In my opinion, one major reason why these extremely talented players have stayed silent on joining the Black Stars is the fear of being placed on the bench. 

The World Cup is a stage where each and every player wants to shine, and it's obvious these two might be warming the bench for a very long time, looking at the options Ghana has to choose from when it comes to attackers to be selected for the World Cup.

This fear of not being selected for the final eleven man squad could be a good reason why they haven't taken time to go through the nationality switch process at all.
