Tariq Lamptey, Inaki Williams and Salisu Switch Allegiance To Ghana - GFA Prez

The Europe-based trio are now eligible to represent the four-time African champions at senior level.

Athletic Bilbao’s Inaki Williams, Southampton’s Mohammed Salisu, as well as Brighton & Hove Albion’s Tariq Lamptey, are now eligible to represent Ghana at international level.

This news was confirmed by the president of the Ghana Football Association Kurt Edwin Simeon-Okraku via a post on social media on Tuesday night.

Aside from the trio, Stephan Ambrosius, Patrick Pfeffer and Ransford Yeboah are also qualified to represent the four-time Africa Cup of Nations winners.

“Tariq Lamptey, Inaki Williams, Mohammed Salisu, Stephan Ambrosius, Patrick Pfeffer and Ransford Yeboah [are] available for national selection,” a tweet from an elated Simeon-Okraku read.

“Below, yours truly with the Dad of Tariq (Ahmed) Bro, thanks for the trust and your determination to see Ghana succeed.”

Williams, 28, had represented Spain at U21 level before playing for their senior national team in a 3-1 friendly defeat of Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2016.

In a video posted on Twitter, he announced his new adventure and the reasons behind that.
