Former Ghana Premier League goal king, Latif Blessing is ready to switch nationality and represent the United States if handed the opportunity.
According to the 21-year-old, he has done enough to merit him a call-up to the national team but has often been snubbed.
Blessing’s only time with the senior national team was when he got to train briefly with the Black Stars prior to the 2017 Afcon.

“I am ready to switch nationality and play for the USA. I’m not focused on the Black Stars because I have done enough to merit an invite but to no avail,” Blessing told Accra-based Happy FM.
“One man’s poison is another man’s food, so if I don’t get chance to play for Ghana and USA offer me the opportunity, I will grasp it with my two hands.”
“I’m ever ready for them to call me because I believe it is a place where every footballer would want to ply his trade and enjoy football. Ever since I moved there my level of thinking in every aspect of life has escalated drastically,” he added.
The skillful forward joined Sporting Kansas City from Liberty Professionals in January 2017, months after he had completed the 2015/16 Ghana Premier League season as top scorer.
Blessing scored six goals and two assists in 31 matches across all competitions for Sporting Kansas before joining Los Angeles FC.
