The English-born of Ghanaian descent has been handed a late call-up to the senior national team of Ghana for their friendlies against Mali and Qatar.


Brentford FC striker Tariqe Fosu has earned an invitation to the Black Stars by Coach Charles Kwablan Akonnor for this month's international friendly scheduled to be staged in Turkey.

His club's official statement "Tariqe Fosu has joined up with the Ghana squad for the first time ahead of two games in Antalya this week."
"The Black Stars head to the largest city on Turkey's Mediterranean coast to face Mali this coming Friday, 9 October, kick-off 6pm, before a game against Qatar on Monday, 12 October, kick-off 4.30pm. Both games are in preparation for next month's Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sudan."
It is the first time Tariqe, who was capped at England Under-18 level, has met up with his Ghana teammates. 
The 24-year-old was previously included in March's squad just before football was suspended due to Covid-19. 
Tariqe joined The Bees in January from Oxford United. 
He made 11 appearances in the Sky Bet Championship last campaign, netting his maiden Brentford goal against Sheffield Wednesday in March. 
This term he has made a further six appearances in league and Carabao Cup.
