Playing against Ghana is not personal, just business - Niger's Dankwa

Niger's Kofi Dankwa to line up against his country of birth, Ghana at 2013 AFCON

By Ameenu Shardow

Kofi Dankwa says he hopes Ghanaians understand and accept his decision to play for Niger against the Black Stars at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

The 23-year-old, who plays for Tunisian side Zarzis, was named in a 26-man provisional squad for the tournament in South Africa.

If he makes the Menas final squad for Africa’s flagship football competition, Dankwa will come up against Ghana – the country of his parents.

Dankwa, who was born and raised in Dansoman, a suburb of Accra says the prospect of playing against his country of birth is not personal but purely business.

“A game is a game but I have never turned my back on you people,” he said.

“But my work comes first and I hope you people respect that.”

Niger will move to camp on December 27 and will play fellow 2013 Nations Cup finalists Ethiopia in a warm up game.

The Menas will not play the Black Stars until the final game of Group B on January 28 in Port Elizabeth haven played Mali and DR Congo in their opening group games.
