Fifa Demands More Documents On Frimpong Switch

The Ghana Football Association has been asked by FIFA to provide more documents on Emmanuel Frimpong in order to ratify his nationality switch. 

Frimpong, a former England youth player, applied for a change in allegiance five months ago but that has delayed.

The Ghana FA initially provided the supporting documents required by FIFA for approval including a letter from England FA.

The Arsenal midfielder-who is on loan at Wolverhampton Wanderers-has also forwarded documents to the world’s football governing body.

The 19-year-old was born in Accra to Ghanaian players but moved to London where he enrolled at the Hale End Academy at the age of 9 alongside fellow graduate Jack Wilshere.

When he turned 14, Frimpong left to focus on playing football full-time at Arsenal’s youth academy.

If he is cleared before June, he could play a part in Ghana’s 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign.
