Ghanaian winger Latif Blessing expresses readiness to play for any country

Published on: 16 September 2019

Ghanaian winger Latif Atta Blessing has expressed his readiness to switch his nationality to play for any country if Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah keeps snubbing him.

The former Ghana Premier League goal king feels disappointed when he doesn't receive an invitation from Ghana to play during the FIFA international break despite his remarkable form for Los Angeles FC.

The 22-year-old has scored 17 goals in 84 matches in the MLS.

“Not getting a call-up is a difficult thing to deal with and sometimes, I feel disappointed,” Blessing told LAFC TV

“I know that I am playing well but the invitations are not coming through. People in Ghana have been asking why I have not been playing for the national team but then, I am waiting for that invitation. I believe that there are better times ahead."

"If Ghana is not ready to give me a call-up, I will play for another country that wants me. I need to move forward as a player. Off the United States give me a call-up, I will say yes to it. I am working on getting my passport and documentation that will allow me to stay here and play.”

He earned an invitation to train with Black Stars ahead of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations under Coach Avram Grant.
