Ghanaian striker Latif Blessing has revealed that he is looking into switching his international allegiance to the USA.

The 21-year-old is on the books of American club Los Angeles FC, having represented Sporting Kansas City last year.

Blessing was snubbed by Ghana coach James Kwesi Appiah through the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign and his frustration at being ignored may see him turn out for America in the future.

“I am ready to switch nationality and play for USA. I’m not focused on the Black Stars because I have done enough to merit an invite but to no avail,” Blessing told Happy FM, as quoted by GHANASoccernet.

"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.”

Blessing was a part of Ghana’s preliminary squad for last year’s Africa Cup of Nations, but he was not included in the final 23-man selection.
