“Play AFCON qualifiers to prove your commitment” -Agyemang Badu to foreign-born players

Ghana international, Agyemang Badu has charged Ghanaian players born abroad and willing to switch nationality to play for the Black Stars to first show their commitment by playing in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

Following Ghana’s qualification to the 2022 Qatar World, several players who have displayed reluctance to play for the national team are now said to be considering making the switch.

According to Agyemang Badu, although he has no problem with that, any player that decides to make the switch should be ready to play in the AFCON qualifiers as well and not just at the world cup.

“Those who wouldn’t have any problem switching nationality must be ready for the 2023 AFCON qualifiers so they get familiar with the terrain, It shouldn’t be that the player plays the world cup and that’s it,” Agyemang Badu told 3 Sports.

The likes of Eddie Nketiah and Callum Hudson-Odoi are two players that could successfully switch allegiance from England to play for Ghana before the close of this year.

Athletic Bilbao brothers, Inaki and Nico Williams, as well as Brighton and Hove Albion right back, Tariq Lamptey, have also been approached for a nationality switch, according to reports.
