Ransford Yeboah Königsdörffer, a winger for the Black Stars, has made himself available for the Black Meteors in preparation for the 2023 Africa U-23 Cup of Nations.
The 21-year-old, who was born in Germany to Ghanaian parents, had previously played for his country of birth at the youth level before deciding to switch his allegiance to Ghana.
He received his first call-up to the national team in September of last year and made his debut in a friendly match against Nicaragua. Despite scoring seven goals for Hamburger SV in the Bundesliga II this season, he was not given a chance to play in the 2023 AFCON qualifiers against Angola.
In an interview with Ghanaweb, Königsdörffer expressed his willingness to play for the Ghana U-23 side if he were to receive an invitation. He stated, “that is a good question, but I don’t know; I have never thought about it or talked about it to someone. Maybe if they call me. I don’t know when the tournament is, but we never know.”
The Black Meteors recently secured a place in the Africa U-23 Championship by defeating Algeria (2-1 on aggregate) last Tuesday. The tournament will be held in Morocco in June of this year and will serve as a qualifier for the 2024 Olympics Games in Paris.
