The Ghanaian national team, known as the Black Stars, has maintained its admiration for the acquisition of two highly talented players, namely Eddie Nketiah from Arsenal and Callum Hudson-Odoi from Leverkusen.
The hopes of Ghanaians were dashed when the former coach unveiled the squad list for the World Cup 2022 in Qatar, which did not include Nketiah and Hudson-Odoi.
Many believed that Ghana had abandoned their pursuit of these players. However, a recent declaration from an Irishman, the former Brighton and Hove Albion manager, revealed his strong desire to bring them on board.
The Ghana Football Association has been in close contact with Eddie Nketiah’s uncle since 2022, but there is one obstacle: the player himself seeks assurances of receiving sufficient playing time.
As for Hudson-Odoi, he has all but agreed to represent the Black Stars, given that he has been sidelined by England for quite some time now. Reliable sources, including Dasmani B Mohammed, have indicated that securing Hudson-Odoi’s commitment is practically a done deal for the Ghanaian national team.
The significance of these two players cannot be overstated. Acquiring Nketiah and Hudson-Odoi would not only enhance the Black Stars’ overall quality, but it would also intensify competition within the team.
Nketiah has a remarkable knack for scoring goals, irrespective of the caliber of opponents. On the other hand, Hudson-Odoi’s versatility enables him to excel in various positions on the flanks, making him a formidable and elusive player.
