Bristol City forward, Antoine Semenyo, says he didn’t think twice about playing for the Black Stars when he was contacted to play for Ghana

Antoine Semenyo has been in an amazing form for Bristol City, scoring eight times and providing 12 assists with his side being on the 17th positive after 45 games played.

Speaking with Happy FM earlier on Monday, May 2, the 22-year-old revealed the decision to play for Ghana was a dream

“No [It didn’t take long to decide on playing for Ghana]. I have always wanted to play for Ghana but it was just the timing,” he said.

“I needed to obviously get a bit of form and experience before hopefully, I could reach out to Ghana. Obviously, they have come to me so I can’t complain.”

Semenyo was in line to make his Black Stars debut against Nigeria in the 2022 FIFA World Cup playoff until his injury in March.

Antoine Semenyo said he was in good shape and was looking forward to making his debut only for his injury to rule him out of the game

“I felt it was the right time. I felt I was playing really well. I felt the call [to play for Ghana] was the right thing to do but obviously the injury came. I was so prepared for the game [vs Nigeria],” he added.

“I’ve got few friends in Nigeria so I wanted to obviously win and get the bragging rights but for myself, it’s always an honour and I will always be ready for the Black Stars.
