Midfielder Emmanuel Frimpong’s continued wait to play for Ghana is because he is yet to be granted permission to do so by Fifa.
Several Ghanaian fans have craved for the invitation of the 19-year-old Arsenal starlet but it appears he is not fully in the clear to feature for the Black Stars ahead of next year’s Africa Cup of Nations.
Assistant Black Stars coach Akwasi Appiah who confirmed this on Takoradi-based Melody FM however insists the young lad is much in the plans of the Black Stars technical team.
“Goran (Stevanovic) spoke to him and I have visited him twice at his home and he is more than willing to play for Ghana,” he said.
“We are processing his papers, you know it takes time now his papers are with Fifa and we are waiting for them to give the final decision on his case.
“Therefore once that is finalized he will be able to play for Ghana.
“As I said we need to clarify his situation that is getting notification that he play for Ghana and if this decision is taken say tomorrow the technical team will meet and take a decision on that”
Frimpong is one of many youngsters being named as possible candidates for the final 23-man squad for the Nations Cup which kicks off on January 21 in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
