Arsenal man misses out on the World Cup after rejecting offers to change nationality

Eddie Nketiah is England’s record goalscorer at the youth level and the striker should ideally take that form to the senior Three Lions team.

However, he cannot even get playing time at Arsenal and it would be hard for Gareth Southgate to consider him for action.

This has made him consider switching nationalities and the other country he can play for is Ghana.

His parents are from the African nation and that makes him eligible to play for them, which could be a boost to the West Africans.

They have qualified for the World Cup and want to get a few Premier League stars in their squad for the competition.

Nketiah has been asked to switch allegiance to them for a long time, but the striker has been hesitant.

A report on Ghana Soccer Net reveals they have given up hopes of convincing him to make the change.

This means he will now miss Qatar 2022, which kicks off just next month.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Nketiah did well last season when he broke into the team at the end of the campaign.

If he continued to play regularly, he could have been considered to play for England this season.

However, the arrival of Gabriel Jesus has seen him spend more time on the bench than he would have liked.

His refusal to play for Ghana yet could be because he still dreams of playing for England.

  1. He has his reasons I believe.

    Out of topic, Nketia is one player I hope will rediscover his form from last season so we can get a decent offer and sell him straight away. I just don’t want him to end up just like the likes of AMN, Nelson etc. Difficult to ship out because we didn’t sell while they had good value on the market.

  2. He has to be extremely talented to jump the queue on England’s list of Centre forwards,
    I think his best option would be playing for Ghana 🇬🇭,
    He’s no where close to Sterling, Calvert, Tammy, Kane, Toney, foden, Vardy, Rashford etc
