In an exclusive interview with one sport news portal, England youth star Tariq Lamptey hinted that he might play for Ghana’s senior national team, the Black Stars.
The Ghana Football Association has made Lamptey, who was born in London to Ghanaian parents, a key priority.
The GFA sought to bring Lamptey to Black Stars multiple times and, despite their failures, has not given up the chase.
The Brighton and Hove Albion right-back presently plays for the England U-21 side, but he’s likely to switch once the Black Stars qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Lamptey is one of the Premier League’s top young players, as proven by his performance in Brighton’s 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspurs on Saturday.
The 21-year-old was one among Brighton’s star performers in the narrow win, which weakened Tottenham’s chances of finishing in the top four.
Lamptey was asked about his international future and whether he may play for the Black Stars at the World Cup in Qatar by a news portal after the game.
