Arsenal forward, Eddie Nketiah has expressed his elation and gratitude upon receiving his inaugural call-up to England’s senior national team.
This announcement follows recent discussions revolving around the potential shift in Nketiah’s international allegiance to Ghana.
In a statement shared via Twitter, Nketiah extended his heartfelt gratitude for the opportunity, stating, “
“It’s an honour to receive my first senior call up. Glory be to God – can’t wait to meet up with the squad! @England“
The 22-year-old’s response underscores his eagerness to join the England national team camp and make a contribution on the international platform.
The decision to include Nketiah in the squad comes shortly after conversations regarding his potential move to represent the Black Stars were acknowledged by Ghana coach Chris Hughton.
Despite his Ghanaian heritage, England’s proactive step in summoning Nketiah for the upcoming matches against Ukraine and Scotland in September reflects their dedication to securing his involvement.
Nketiah’s noteworthy performances with Arsenal, including his recent accomplishment of netting two goals in three Premier League matches, have undoubtedly captured the attention of the England selectors.
