Brentford winger, Tariqe Fosu Henry, says he feels excited to have gotten the chance to represent Ghana’s senior men’s national team, the Black Stars.
The 25-year-old made his debut for Ghana in the Black Stars’ 3-0 drubbing by Mali, during a FIFA international friendly in the October 2020 international break.
Fosu said though the call came late for him to fly to Turkey for the October international friendlies against Mali and Qatar, but was more than excited to represent Ghana.
“I think it was great to get the chance to play for Ghana,” he told GFA Media.
“My debut delayed a bit because of COVID-19 but when the call came for me to travel to Turkey to play in the International friendly, I was very happy.
“It came in quite late, but when the coach called me to come, I said I was very happy to come.
“I spoke to him before, and I’m happy that he gave me the Chance to perform and show my qualities,” he scored in his second appearance when Ghana beat Qatar 5-1.
“My grandparents are from Ghana and they live in Ghana now. They are from Kumasi so I love Ghana. I wasn’t born in Ghana but I moved here when I was three.
“I schooled here at Ridge school in Kumasi, so, I know the country well. Growing up in Ghana, I always supported the team and when I got the call up, I was more than delighted to come.
“I don’t think there’s a stereotype of European players because after my experience, there has been nothing but good vibes and good experience,” Fosu said, referring to experiences of players born abroad playing for Ghana.
