After receiving his first Ghana call-up, Bristol City attacker Antoine Semenyo is excited to play for the Black Stars.

The 22-year-old Antoine Semenyo was born in Chelsea but has never represented England at any level, making him eligible to represent Ghana.

Otto Addo’s current team has four new faces ahead of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers in June.

On June 1, the Black Stars will play Madagascar at Cape Coast Stadium before facing CAR four days later.

Addo’s team will then compete in the 2022 Kirin Super Cup, a four-nation event that features Japan, Chile, and Tunisia.

In a post on Twitter, Bristol City expressed their delight at Semenyo’s Black Stars invitation, accompanied by photos of the striker modelling in Ghana’s away jersey.

“Antoine Semenyo has had a great season in front of goal and despite being out injured for more than a dozen games at the start of the campaign the 22-year-old made 20 goal contributions, with 8 goals and 12 assists,” the club wrote in a statement.

“His form for the Robins has been rewarded with a call-up to the international setup for the first time that sees him in the Ghana squad for their three upcoming fixtures in June.”

Semenyo was a key figure for Bristol City in the 2021/22 Championship season, scoring eight goals and providing 12 assists.
