Holland hand Timothy Fosu-Mensah late call-up

Ghana is on the verge of losing Timothy Fosu-Mensah to Netherlands after he was handed a call-up to the Dutch national football team for their upcoming qualifiers.


Ghana’s hopes of getting Fosu-Mensah committed to the Black Stars may be dashed if the Crystal Palace defender gets the chance to feature for the Netherlands after earning a late call-up.

Fosu-Mensah was originally selected in the Netherlands U21 squad but now has the chance to make his debut for the full national team. Should he appear against France or Bulgaria it will end speculation over his international future, with the 19-year-old also coveted by Ghana.

Netherlands face France on Thursday before a tie with Bulgaria three days later.
