US-based Ghanaian international Kwadwo Poku says he was approached by the United States Soccer Federation to represent the country.
The Miami City attacker had an offer to represent the United States National team at international level having lived most of his life in the country.
Poku attracted interest from former USA Coach Jürgen Klinsmann who was willing to have him in the National team.
The 25-year-old however turned down the offer to commit his allegiance to his native country Ghana.
“Yes i had a couple of calls from people in the FA, people working with the US Soccer team,” he said on GTV Sports plus.
“They wanted me to play for them but I decided to play for Ghana, it has always been my dream to play for my country.”
The former New York City FC attacking midfielder earned his debut Black Stars call-up in an international friendly against Canada two years ago.
The Kumasi-born moved to the State in 2010 after playing in the youth system of Ghanaian giants Asante Kotoko.
