Hamburg-born Stephan Ambrosius has achieved a long-awaited milestone by making his debut for Ghana, contributing from the bench as the Black Stars secured a 3-1 victory over Liberia in a friendly match on Tuesday.
Ambrosius, who was born in Germany but decided to represent Ghana, his parents’ homeland, had been eagerly anticipating this opportunity, which was delayed due to a series of injuries.
Last year, the Hamburger SV defender officially switched his nationality to represent Ghana, a heartfelt commitment to his ancestral roots. However, persistent injuries had repeatedly postponed his debut for the national team.
Ambrosius’s perseverance and patience finally paid off during the friendly match against Liberia in Accra. He was given the chance to make his debut during the second half of the game, and he didn’t disappoint, showcasing his potential.
This moment held immense significance for Ambrosius, who had overcome injury setbacks to proudly wear the jersey of the Ghanaian national team.
The 24-year-old will return to his club side with a sense of happiness and confidence after a successful international window.
