Latif Blessing threatens Ghana again over Black Stars snub

US-based Ghanaian attacker Latif Blessing has reiterated his desire to turn his back on the West African nation at international level for being consistently overlooked for national call-ups.

Currently on the books of Major League Soccer side Los Angeles FC, the 22-year-old first revealed his intentions last December, less than two years after moving to the US.

He is yet to make an appearance for the Black Stars, his closest opportunity coming in January 2017 when he made Ghana's provisional squad for the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

This season, the winger has made 30 MLS appearances for LAFC so far, starting 26 of the games and scoring six times.

He rose to prominence on the local scene in the 2015-16 season when he won both the top scorer and best player awards in the Ghana Premier League with Liberty Professionals.

He first joined Sporting Kansas City after leaving Ghana in January 2017.
