A section of Ghanaian football lovers has questioned why Holstein Kiel striker, Kwasi Okyere-Wriedt has been chosen ahead of Gold Stars forward, Abednego Tetteh for the 2023 AFCON qualifier against Madagascar.

The 32-year-old has regained his mojo at the Premier League club after joining them from King Faisal on a free transfer.

Tetteh has bagged 14 goals in 27 matches in the 2022/23 BetPawa Premier League with many tipping him ahead of Okyere-Wriedt who has struggled to find his scoring boots this term.

The 28-year-old former Bayern Munich II striker has a paltry 3 goals in 26 games with just an assist for the German Bundesliga II club.

Per the statistics, Tetteh towers above Kwasi but many have also rated the standard of the Bundesliga II ahead of the BetwPawa premier league hence the latter’s choice for the AFCON qualifiers.

Abednego Tetteh previously played for Bechem United, Hearts of Oa, Sudan clubs Hilal Obeid and Hilal Omdurman plus stints at Indian clubs Real Kashmir and TRAU FC.
