At the very last minute, Eintracht Frankfurt strike of Ghanaian-roots Ragnar Ache has been included in the Olympic team for Germany.
Perhaps this will also really get his career going after suffering from too many injuries last season at the club under manager Adi Hutter.
Because in Tokyo, the striker with strong performances can do a lot of self-promotion into the four-time world cup winners team just as Serge Gnabry who succeeded five years ago at the Olympics to walk his team into senior squad.
Before the Olympics only very few people knew Gnabry in 2016. The 26-year-old was playing in the reserves league at Arsenal FC and played there in the U21s.
But after bagging six goals and winning the silver medal got him into the Bundesliga – and now he’s a Bayern star and national player.
The German-born Ghanaian forward could become a star in Germany if he’s able to lead the German Olympics team to higher height in this year’s games.
Ache got a late call-up and has been released by his club to join camp and represent the Europeans in Tokyo this summer.
