Asamoah Gyan has heaped praise for former Chelsea right back Triq Lamptey, Athletic Bilbao striker Inaki Williams, SV Darmstadt 98 defender Patric Pfeiffer, and Hamburger SV forward Ransford-Yeboah Konigsdorgfer after they change their allegiance to play for Ghana ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The 36-year-old legendary Black Stars striker warned the foreign-born players who have switched nationalities to represent the West African nations to do it beyond this year’s tournament in the middle east.
Gyan has lauded players and the former Sunderland goal poacher knows what the foreign-born stars will bring to the Ghanaian national team for the long haul.
The Accra-born superstar who is the top African scorer in the history of the World Cup with six goals has represented his nations 109 times and scored 51 goals during his playing days with four-time African Champions told Ghana Soccernet.
“Sometimes we should forget about everything. Kevin-Prince Boateng when he came, it was a whole lot but he was able to deliver,”
“Football-wise, those who have come in are great players, Tariq Lamptey and those guys are very good players and they can also put something into the national team.
“My advice to those guys is, we are here to support them but my question is what next? They should not come and play because of the World Cup and afterward, they decide to decline subsequent invitations.”
“Once you have naturalised for Ghana, you should be fully committed to the national team. After the [World Cup], they should still be available because this is a national team which does not engage in one tournament.”
Brighton star Lamptey, Williams, Yeboah, Pfeffer, Ambrosius, and Southampton center-back Mohamed Salisu have been called up for these international friendly matches against Brazil and Nicaragua.
The Black Stars of Ghana are in Group H alongside Portugal, Uruguay, and South Korea.
