St.Pauli Sporting Director Andreas Bornemann has confirmed that Daniel Kofi Kyereh will represent Ghana’s Black Stars at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
The German Bundesliga II side will miss the services of the 25-year-old key assist provider in January when they face Borussia Dortmund and HSV.
“It is definitely the case that Kofi is in the squad of Ghana,” said Andreas Bornemann.
A few weeks ago, the sports director mentioned it was not anchored in the international calendar to have appointed players go to the tournament in Cameroon (from January 6th). But now there is “a bit of mandatory parking through the back door”.
He made his debut for the Black Stars in the 2022 World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium in September this year.
Black Stars coach Milovan Rajevac is yet to name his squad for the 2021 AFCON but it is likely the German-born Ghanaian will make the squad.
Kofi Kyereh made 18 appearances for St.Pauli in the Bundesliga II this season with five goals, 10 assists to his credit.
