English-born Ghanaian footballer Kwame Poku has been handed a debut call up to the Black Stars ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Africa and Sao Tome.
The 19-year old who plays for Colchester United in the English League Two has made 31 appearances in the ongoing campaign for his side registering one assist.
The attacking midfielder’s call-up has been met with mixed reactions from the fans.
Poku is one of the highly regarded young prospects in the English League 2 and he has already been tipped for greatness after his exploits this season which saw the U’s reaching the League Two play-offs and also the Carabao Cup last eight.
He previously featured for Cray Wanderers and Worthington FC before moving to Colchester as a free agent in the summer of 2019.
Poku was voted as Colchester’s Young Player of the Year last season.
