Ghanaian youngster accepts to play for Togo after Black Stars snub

DailyNewsGhana.com can exclusively report that Romania-based midfielder Samuel Asamoah has accepted an invitation from Togo’s national team after being repeatedly snubbed by Ghana for an international call-up at a time when the Black Stars are pursuing foreign-born players.

The 27-year-old, who now plays for FC U Craiova 1948 in Romania, has been called up to the Togo national team for the first time to participate in friendlies later this month.

Asamoah, who was born in Ghana to a Ghanaian father and a Togolese mother, wished to play for the more valiant and illustrious Black Stars and hoped for a call-up from his father’s homeland.

But, with the clock ticking and no way out, the former Sint-Truiden defender has accepted to swap nationalities in order to play international football for the Sparrow Hawks.

He is a Ghanaian citizen who was born in Accra and holds a Ghanaian passport.

Coach Paulo Duarte of Togo has finally landed Asamoah, who has accepted to play for Ghana’s neighbors.

Asamoah is dissatisfied that the Ghanaian football officials are pursuing reluctant foreign-born players to play for the Black Stars while ignoring players born in the nation who are eager to play.
