Mohamed Diomande Declines Ghana Call-Up…

Mohamed Diomande has denied Ghana’s call-up for the forthcoming friendly matches against Nigeria and Uganda, citing the need for more time to deliberate on his international future.

Born in Ivory Coast, Diomande formerly played for the Right to Dream program in Ghana before traveling to Europe to join FC Nordsjaelland. Despite being picked in Otto Addo’s squad for the March international window, he has also been selected for Ivory Coast’s U23 team.

In a message on Instagram, the 22-year-old expressed thanks for Ghana’s call-up and acknowledged that he has been in communication with Otto Addo over his choice. However, he highlighted that the manager possesses the final knowledge regarding his decision.

Sources close to the Black Stars stated that Diomande was due to join the team’s camp in Marrakech on Thursday ahead of the Nigeria encounter on Friday. The Ivorian federation has allegedly reached out to the player, who has yet to earn a cap at the national team level, in an effort to urge him to rethink his choice.

Ghana is expected to play against Nigeria on March 22, followed by a match against Uganda four days later, with both games scheduled to take place in Morocco.
