FIFA has accepted Leicester City’s Joe Dodoo’s request to feature for Ghana, Ghanasportsonline.com has learnt.
Dodoo had requested to switch nationality to play for the Black Stars after representing England at junior level.
The 21-year-old had declared his intentions to represent his native country due to the limited opportunity in the English National team. The striker who made three appearances for Leicester City’s first team is said to have been granted the permission to represent Ghana.
The player was recently in Ghana to join the Black Stars at training prior to the team’s Cup of Nations qualifier against Mauritius.
He will thus be available for selection when the Black Stars take on Rwanda in their final qualifier for the 2017 Cup of Nations in Gabon.
