Anderlecht player Francis Amuzu changes his nationality from Belgium to Ghana


Francis Amuzu, a winger for Anderlecht, is reported to have successfully changed his nationality from Belgium to Ghana.

The 23-year-old, who was born in Accra, relocated to Belgium when he was a little child and began his football career there.Amuzu has advanced through the ranks at Anderlecht and from 2017 to 2020, he also represented Belgium's U19s and U21s.

He received his first senior call-up in September 2022, although he didn't play in Belgium's Nations League matches against Wales and the Netherlands.


According to 3Sports, the talented player has since successfully changed his nationality, enabling him to play for Ghana.

The footballer is cited in a letter as saying, "The motivation behind this choice is that I believe it an obligation to play for my mother nation since my parents are Ghanaian."

Amuzu made a spectacular about-face from his prior assertion that he only has eyes for Belgium by deciding to play for Ghana. 

They phone my agent every day, but I keep it off, he claimed in a 2022 Het Nieuwsblad interview. I was born in Ghana, and the African ambiance there makes me feel at home whenever I visit.

"Belgium is where my sporting heart is. At a tournament like this, Belgium may help you advance very far, while Ghana has a real potential of knocking you out very fast.

We'll see. I have a career plan. The Anderlecht winger continued, "I had thought that I would already have more playing time, but I also have to prove myself.

It is unknown if the incoming Black Stars coach will consider Amuzu for his roster.
