Former England youth international Tariq Lamptey is highly looking forward to representing the Ghana Black Stars.
The Ghana Football Association (GFA) confirmed last month the 21-year-old among five others have agreed to play for Ghana, but there was no official comment from the player.
He has now taken to Instagram to express his happiness in playing for Ghana following his recent call up by head coach Otto Addo to face Brazil and Nicaragua in pre-2022 World Cup friendlies later this month.
“I’m happy that everything is completed with FIFA and I’m able to play for Ghana,” the 20-capped England youth star said on Instagram.
“I thank God for giving me this opportunity. I would like to say a big thank you to everyone involved in making this happen.
“I’d like to take a moment to thank England and everyone involved in my journey so far. I’ve had some unbelievable memories and I’m grateful for everyone who’s helped me along the way from coaches, staff, players and fans.
“It was an honour to wear the shirt and represent the country, thank you.
“I’m really excited to start this journey and looking forward to representing Ghana. I can’t wait to play in front of you amazing fans. Thank you for the warm welcome. Let’s goo.”
