Despite recently pledging to play for West Africa, Patric Pfeiffer was left off the roster for the forthcoming friendlies against Brazil and Nicaragua.
Pfeiffer, a German native who has managed Germany’s U-19 team, said he will play for Ghana in June and anticipates being called up for this month’s key pre-World Cup friendly.
The central defender’s prospects of making the World Cup final team may be in jeopardy as a result of the 23-year-exclusion old’s from the 29-man roster that was revealed on Tuesday.
The fact that the SV Darmstadt 98 player is not one of the team’s eleven defenders shows that he has not yet persuaded Ghana coach Otto Addo.
Pfeiffer has played in five games and scored one goal this season in Germany’s second-tier division.
On Friday, September 23, 2022, Ghana will play Brazil at Stade Oceane in Le Harve, France. On Tuesday, September 27, 2022, Ghana will take on Nicaragua at Estadio Francisco Artes Carrasco in Lorca, Spain.
The team is preparing for the World Cup, which starts on November 20, by playing both games.
In the group stage, Ghana will compete against Portugal, South Korea, and Uruguay.
