Ibrahim Tanko explains how the FA could convince Ghanian players abroad to play for the black stars

suggested how the Ghana Football Association can convince foreign-based Ghanaian players to switch nationality and play for the national team.

In recent times, Ghana has a lot of talents to other European countries with the latest being Jeremy Duku who snubbed the Black Stars to play for Belgium.

According to Ibrahim Tanko, there are a lot of talented Ghanaian players abroad and they must be poached at a tender age before they even get call-ups to the national team of those countries.

“There are a lot of Ghanaian talents abroad especially in England, Germany, and Holland but we always wait for them to play first-team football before they get our attention. If we want to integrate them into our national team, we need to start early. A player like Tariq Lamptey has the potential of playing for the England national team because he plays in England,” he told Wontumi Sports.

He suggested that the Ghana FA set up a scouting network by using some former Ghanaian players abroad who can monitor and approach these players and convince them to play for the national team.

“In Germany, we have Oto Addo, Eric Addo in Holland, Adu Tutu is also in Austria and Razak in Denmark. If we ask these former players to speak to the youngsters, they can convince them because they have experience in dealing with players. I know Turkish FA have an office in Germany because they know they are Turkish players who are based in Germany. So if we do the same, we will get these players.”

Ghana over the year has lost some good talents to other countries such as Callum Hudson-Odoi (Chelsea, England), Jeremy Duku (Anderlecht, Belgium) and others.
