Collins Quarner of Huddersfield to play for Ghana

Collins Quarner

The Ghana Football Association is working on the FIFA nationality switch of Huddersfield Town striker Collins Quarner.

Quarner, who stands at 6’3ft could be set for the Black Stars upcoming World Cup qualifiers.

German-born striker Collin Quaner, has declared his readiness to play for Ghana despite playing for Germany’s U-20.

The former FC Union Berlin man has been officially contacted by Ghana’s technical handlers and is in the process of facilitating his nationality switch to feature for the Black Stars.

Quarner, who helped Huddersfield Town to secure promotion into the English topflight, was born in Düsseldorf Gerresheim, Germany, where his parents still live.

But the powerful 26-year-old forward, despite having featured for Germany at the Youth level, has a Ghanaian ancestry and has formally accepted an invite from the Ghana Football Association and is facilitating his switch.

A Ghana FA source told SportsObama.com the player was being targeted for Ghana’s two friendly matches last month, but delays with his FIFA switch hindered the move.

The former Armenia Bielefield striker has scored 26 career goals in 159 games and hit three for Huddersfield on their way to the Premiership.
