Ghana U-20 team opened to quality additions ahead of AYC

Kofi Ntiamoah Nimeley is latest to make invitation call to play for Ghana

The Ghana FA is maintaining its open-door policy for selecting players into the U-20 team ahead of the African Youth Championships.

Several players have announced their ambition to be part of the team for the tournament to be hosted next year in Algeria.

Latest to make such a call for an invitation is 2009 U-17 World Cup winner with Switzerland Kofi Ntiamoah Nimeley.

The 19-year-old defender has decided to play for his country of birth despite having a fine opportunity to continue to feature for the various Swiss national teams.

Ghana FA Executive Committee Member George Afriyie who chairs the U-20 team in welcoming Nimeley’s decision says any Ghanaian qualified to play will be given the chance to as and when the technical handlers deem fit.

“It is good news that players including this chap want to play for Ghana, we are always open to add quality to the team for the African Youth Championships,” he told GHANAsoccernet.com.

“However I must add that every Ghanaian both home and abroad once qualified to play for the Black Satellites will be given the opportunity by the coaches.

“If after monitoring you, they believe you are good enough and can help the team, why not?

“We won’t shut the door on anybody just because they did not take part in the qualifiers. We are only interested in presenting a solid team at the championships.”

Ghana ditched Morocco in the last qualifying round to emerge one of eight teams to compete at the 2013 AYC in Algeria.

The Black Satellites will however have to wait until December nine to know which of the other qualified teams it will be doing battle with at the group stage.
