Italy based midfielder, Robin Quaison has flatly rejected any chance of playing for the country of his father after openly declaring allegiance for Sweden over Ghana.
Born to a Ghanaian father and a Swedish mother in the European country on October 9, 1993, Quaison has already featured for the Swedes at under 21 level and now he has declared his international future lies with Zlatan Ibrahimovic et al.
‘It has always been Sweden. Playing for Ghana has never been an option. I’ve said it to my agent and now I’m saying it to the press that it has always been Sweden,’ Quaison told Swedish website hd.se.
‘I am Swedish. I was born here and this is where I grew up. I have been waiting for the day I would get to share the dressing room with Kim Kallstrom, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Johan Elmander and everyone else in the Swedish squad,’ he added with no inhibition.
The 21 year old is currently on the books of Italian Serie A side, Palermo who he joined from AIK where he played 36 games in the Swedish Allsveskan from 2012 to 2014.
Two goals in 12 Serie A games (4 starts) have not been overly impressive but Quaison is looking ahead to the future with a lot of hope.
‘Now I’m focusing on my club Palermo and I hope to join the Swedish team any day to play for my country,’ the young midfielder said. Follow @thedonplato
