Published on: 13 October 2020

Ghana winger Tariqe Fosu is over the moon after scoring his first international goal for Ghana in Monday’s friendly against Qatar.

The 24-year-old who plays for English Championship side Brentford FC, made his Ghana debut on Friday, against Mali in an international friendly at the Emir Sports complex in Antalya, Turkey.

Fosu was deployed at right-back against Mali but moved to his natural left-wing role by Coach C.K Akonnor in Monday night’s game against Asian Champions Qatar at the Titanic stadium.

With a record of one goal in two games, Tariqe is buzzing with confidence going into the future.

"I am proud and happy that we got the result today because the other day, I made my debut but it wasn’t a good result, and I wanted to make sure that we put things right today," the Reading FC Academy product told the Ghana FA website.

"I played in my natural position today so I was allowed to express and show what I can do so I’m just happy that we got the result today and I hope all the fans are happy with it," he added.

Fosu will be hoping to get a call up for Ghana's 2022 Africa Cup of Nations [Afcon] doubleheader qualifier against Sudan.
