Eddie Nketiah's Visit to Ghana

Arsenal forward, Eddie Nketiah, has arrived in Ghana to see family and friends as well as enjoy his short holiday.

The 23-year-old touched down at the Kotoka International Airport on Tuesday, November 15, at 21:00 GMT.

Upon his arrival, the player was met by his father and mother as well as other relatives present. The players of Ghana Women’s Premier League, Ridge City were also on hand to welcome him.

The forward missed out on a place in Gary Southgate’s final 26-man England team for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

He is expected to be in Ghana for some days as part of his visit before returning to London as Arsenal prepare for a mid-season tour.

In the current season, Nketiah has been directly involved in four goals for Mikel Arteta’s side, scoring three goals and providing one assist across all competitions.

With Ridge City being heavily involved, Nketiah will also visit the club’s training ground in the coming days before his departure.

The former Leeds United striker was born to Ghanaian parents in London and lived in England for the majority of his life with occasional visits to Ghana.

Nketiah has been through the youth ranks of Arsenal since childhood. After joining the Arsenal Academy, Nketiah netted 15 goals in 16 appearances for the under-18s while also scoring 12 goals in 26 appearances for the under-23 side during the 2016/17 season.

He was then called up to the first team by former manager, Arsene Wenger for the club’s pre-season tour to Australia and China the following season.

He also won the MTN FA Cup with the Gunners during the 2019/20 campaign.

On the international, Nketiah, who is still eligible to play for the Black Stars, has featured for England’s youth teams and was part of the 2018 England U21 team that won the Toulon Tournament.
