Dutch-born Ghanaian shot-stopper, Nigel Ekow Oheneba Van Haerevan has revealed his desire to play for his mother’s country, Ghana.
The tall Vitesse Arnhem goalie says he will be very happy to play for the four-time AFCON winners to be able to make his family proud.
According to Nigel, he was an outfield player but decided to change his position after consulting his trainers.
“I used to play as a midfielder but later took interest in goalkeeping after consulting my trainers”
“I am not ready yet because of passport issues. We are working on ensuring that I don’t lose my Dutch passport if I switch to play for Ghana. So when I turn 18, we will see”, Nigel told Happy FM.
Nigel also explained why he opts to play for Ghana instead of the Netherlands.
“For the Dutch national team I haven’t been invited yet but I will be honored to play for Ghana because of my mum. It will make me and my family proud”.
