Accra-born Anderlecht attacker Francis Amuzu has decided to represent the Belgium national team over Ghana.
The Ghanaian international has represented the youth side of the European giants but the GFA is trying to acquire his service for the Black Stars.
Born in Ghana, Amuzu moved to Belgium at an early age and developed as a footballer there. He signed his first professional contract on 23 August 2015 with R.S.C. Anderlecht for 3 years. He made his professional debut for Anderlecht in a 1–0 Belgian First Division A win over K.A.S. Eupen on 22 December 2017, scoring his side’s game-winning goal on his debut.
The 22-year-old disclosed how the football federation in Ghana are working hard to snatch him for the upcoming World Cup via an interview with Het Nieuwsblad.
“They call my broker every day, but I keep it off.”
“Look, I was born in Ghana and when I’m there, I feel at home there because of the African atmosphere. My sporty heart lies with Belgium.”
“With Belgium you can go very far at such a World Cup, with Ghana there is a real chance that you will be out quickly.” He stated.
“I have a career plan and we’ll see. I had hoped that I would already have more playing minutes at Anderlecht, but then I also have to show myself.”
The young attacker bagged nine goals and three assists in 37 appearances in the 2021/22 campaign for Anderlecht.
