2022 WCQ: England-born striker agrees to play for Ghana against Nigeria 

England-born striker Antoine Serlom Semenyo has agreed to play for Ghana against Nigeria in the African qualifying playoff games against Nigeria in March. 

The Bristol City player was born in Chelsea, London but of Ghanaian descent. 

In a bid to solve the lack of goals in the Black Stars, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has sent a delegation to meet him over his availability for the upcoming playoff games against the Super Eagles. 

According to Angel FM’s Saddick Adams, Semenyo has expressed readiness to play for Ghana and nationality switch processes are ongoing.

The 22-year-old has 10 goal contributions this season; scoring four, and assisting six in 16 Championship games. 

With Ghana’s historic failure at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, it is a priority of the Ghana football Association to ensure the Black Stars qualify for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. 

Nigeria has confirmed the second leg will be played on March 27 while the GFA is yet to choose between March 23 and 24 for the first leg at the Cape Coast Stadium.
