Eddie Nketiah and Tariq Lamptey Could Get FIFA Clearance to be Eligible For Ghana

The duo of Arsenal’s Eddie Nketiah and Brighton & Hove Albion’s Tariq Lamptey are reportedly close to becoming eligible to play for Ghana.

It should be recalled that both players who have 56 caps for England’s youth teams between them, have been in talks with the Ghanaian FA, who have recently appointed Chris Hughton as technical director.

Both Nketiah and Lamptey were born in London but have Ghanaian heritage and will find international opportunities easier to come by with the African country as opposed to the England national team due to the vast amount of talent available within the latter.

According to Ghana Soccernet, they are two of three players who will get clearance from FIFA as early as next week.

The report adds that the Ghanaian FA are finding it harder to process the proposed nationality switches of Callum Hudson-Odoi, who has made three senior appearances for England, and one-cap Spain international Inaki Williams. 

If Nketiah and Lamptey gain eligibility as expected, they will be in line to make their debuts in September and could feature at the World Cup in the winter.
