Ghanaian and Los Angeles forward Latif Blessing is frustrated at his lack of involvement in the Ghana national setup and has opened the door to potentially representing USA.
The 21-year-old was snubbed by Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah for Ghana’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign despite his exploits for the Kansas-based outfit last term.
In an interview with Happy FM, Blessing expressed his frustration at a lack of call-ups and indicated that he’s ready to feature for the Yanks should they hand him a call up.
“I am ready to switch nationality and play for USA. I’m not focused on the Black Stars because I have done enough to merit an invite but to no avail,” Blessing told Happy FM.
“One man’s poison is another man’s food, so if I don’t get chance to play for Ghana and USA offer me the opportunity, I will grasp it with my two hands.”
“I’m ever ready for them to call me because I believe it is a place where every footballer would want to ply his trade and enjoy football. Ever since I moved there my level of thinking in every aspect of life has escalated drastically,” he deduced.
He has joined new MLS franchise Los Angeles on a two-year deal ahead of the forthcoming campaign.
