The Ghana Football Association’s official twitter handle, raised eyebrows on Saturday, after sending a congratulatory message to Arsenal forward Eddie Nketiah, after the Gunners won the FA Cup.
Nketiah, picked up the second major title of his career, as Arsenal came from behind to beat Chelsea 2-1 in the FA Cup final at Wembley.
The 21 year old forward, born in England to Ghanaian parents, has already represented England at Under 21 level.
However, the Ghana FA, is reportedly keeping an eye on the forward, with plans to convince him to opt for Ghana at senior level.
The GFA official Twitter handle congratulated the forward after the game, a move that received mixed reactions from Ghanaian football fans.
We need him as soon as possible
