Eddie Nketiah, born to Ghanaian parents in the UK has rejected calls to play for the Black Stars. Countless approaches and attempts by the Ghana Football Association to get him to play for the national team have not yielded any results.
Although his chances of featuring in the England national team looks bleak, Eddie Nketiah has not shown interest in featuring for the Black Stars.
On the back of that, Thomas Partey decided to talk him into rescinding his decision of not playing for Ghana.
In an EFL Cup tie against Sunderland in which Eddie Nketiah scored a hattrick, Thomas Partey shared an Instagram update asking him to play for Ghana.
In the video, Eddie Nketiah was happily holding his awards for scoring the hattrick as Thomas Partey flattered him with felicitations and also exclaimed “You’re ready for Ghana.”
