China-based Frank Acheampong is the globe’s third fastest winger, according to FIFA 22 and Ghana head coach Otto Addo must seriously consider the left winger in his squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Later this month, the German-based tactician would get a clearer idea of how his squad should shape up for the Mundial with two important FIFA international friendly duels against Brazil’s A Selecao and Nicaragua in France and Spain respectively.
Addo, who made two FIFA World Cup appearances in his international career ( against the Czech Republic and the USA – in 2006), is expected to continue to monitor all Ghanaian players at his disposal as he continues to narrow down on the best materials to make a statement for Ghana in a difficult group which features Portugal, old-foes Uruguay, and South Korea.
With the kind of toughened opposition defenses the Black Stars will come up against during the World Cup, it is imperative for Ghana to line up all of its best players everywhere.
And, one player who must certainly be on the flight to Qatar in November is Frank Acheampong – a player who has been in great shape for Shenzen in the Chinese Super League.
It came as a big surprise to everyone when Frank Acheampong was left out of the Ghana squad for the upcoming FIFA international friendlies against Brazil and Nicaragua. Every modern side must have a Frank Acheampong in their armoury.
When unleashed on the left wing, the directness of the former Anderlecht winger becomes a problem for almost every defence in the world.
Currently, the Shenzhen F.C attacker is among the top 3 fastest players globally on FIFA 2022. He is only rated behind Adama Traore and Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior. In a granular FIFA 22 analysis, he was rated with a pace 94, overall speed 77, potential 77, and a value of £10 million. This arsenal cannot be left home while Ghana must make an impact global at all costs.
In this season’s campaign in the Chinese Super League, the former FIFA U20 World Cup medallist has netted 6 times in 12 league games. He adds goals to his games. Despite lasting just 22 minutes in his last international appearance for Ghana, Acheampong provided an assist for Thomas Partey to score the equaliser for the Black Stars who drew 2-2 with Iceland in an international friendly.
