Netherlands striker Myron Boadu denies approach from Ghana

Ghana have already missed out on forward Myron Boadu after the player represented the Netherlands in a UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying match against Estonia last year.

The 19-year-old was said to have met former Black Stars Coach Kwesi Appiah over a possible switch to represent the Black Stars.

Boadu, having presented the Netherlands at youth level hence was eligible to play for Ghana but for his last appearance for the Dutch National team.

Contrary to reports indicating he rejected a request to represent Ghana, the AZ Alkmaar forward claim he was not contacted by any Ghanaian official.

“No, actually not,” Boadu said, as reported by his club’s official website.

“Me, my parents and my agent have never had a call or anything [from Ghana officials].

“So I didn’t have to choose. In the end, it all went quickly with Oranje.”

The striker was in line to play at the Euro 2020 Championship this year but for the outbreak of the COVID-19 which saw the tournament being postponed.

“That is a shame, of course. But health is the most important thing,” the forward said.

“The pre-selection does show that the national coach has confidence in me.”

He was named in Netherlands provisional squad for the tournament which has now been rescheduled to 2021.
