John Antwi has been in fine form for Ismaily

Ismaily striker John Antwi’s consistent run in Egypt could place him in the books of Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah.

At 20, the budding talent has hogged the headlines with his impressive displays in the Arab Region over the past few months.

The former Eleven Wise attacker has shown so much potency upfront which has made many to take notice of his scoring prowess.

He has netted four times in 8 English Premier League games; notched up three goals in six Arab Championship, scored twice in two Confederations Cup matches and banged 12 goals in high-profile friendlies.

The impressive performance of the talented striker could earn him a call-up into one of Ghana’s senior national teams with the Black Stars likely to be his preferred choice.

Antwi has played an influential role for Ismaily who lie second in the Egyptian League zone 2.

The ex-Wassaman striker is believed to have attracted interest from a number of clubs in Egypt and Europe who have been awed by his remarkable scoring rate.

  2. Alex usa. says:

    hes a very good striker and appiah needs to look at him

  3. he should yearn for the U20 inclusion not BSs for now..we shall need strikers of his calibre him next season not now…he should keep it up

  4. Black Stars Fan says:

    He should rather call Jeffrey Schlup again before Germany snatch him. His first game against China is not official. Friendly matches don’t count with FIFA nationality switch.

    GSN payola @ its best, I wonder how much this chap gave you guys for you to start advocating for his inclusion in the B/S. Now if any average player scores in any shitty league he wants to be invited to the senior national team, cuz the B/S has become so cheap off late. Of course if you have shit players like Asante, Kissi Boateng, Awal, Yaw Frimpong, Sumaila, Lee Arday get national team call-up why not. No wonder we’ve been underachieved for for the past 32 yrs.
