GFA Demands Kwarasey Endorsement

Adam Kwarasey LarsenGhana will put a case in front of FIFA for the young goalkeeper to play for them, and not Norway, at full international level.

The GFA (Ghana FA) will this week ask FIFA to endorse Adam Larsen Kwarasey’s switch from Norway to Ghana.

GFA vice-president Fred Pappoe told KickOffGhana that the FA will be seeking the switch, expecting the process to be a formality due to the player’s own expression of interest.

The process will involve providing proof of the player’s Ghanaian roots and evidence that he has not appeared for Norway in a competitive senior game. The 21-year-old expressed his desire to play for Ghana in November 2007, however, he only made his interest official with a written letter to the GFA recently.

The tall goalkeeper was born in Oslo to a Norwegian mother and Ghanaian father, and has spent his entire career in Norway, first playing for Valerenga before making the switch to Stromsgodset.

If Kwarasey’s process goes through as easily as expected, he could be in line for a Ghana debut as early as October, when the Black Stars play games against Sudan.
