Anderlecht winger Francis Amuzu is now eligible to play for Ghana after completing his nationality switch from Belgium.
Amuzu was born in Accra, Ghana but moved to Belgium at a very young age before joining the youth team of Anderlecht.
Despite playing for Belgium’s U19 and U21 sides, the 23-year-old had been on the radar of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) for a while.
The winger received his debut senior international call-up for Belgium in September 2021 for the UEFA Nations League games against Wales and Netherlands but failed to play a single minute.
In a letter to FIFA sighted by 3Sports, Amuzu explained: “the motivation behind this decision is that I deem it an obligation to play for my mother country since my parents are Ghanaian.”
It is believed that his relationship with Ghanaian midfielder Majeed Ashimeru played a key role in Amuzu making his decision to switch nationalities.
With the request granted, Amuzu will be looking forward to a first Black Stars call-up in March.
The Anderlecht forward has scored three goals and provided two assists in the Belgian top-flight this season.
