Emmanuel Agyeman-Badu has announced his retirement from the Ghana’s senior national team.
The 30-year-old midfielder announced this in a statement he posted on Twitter.
“Wearing the national colours has always been a moment of pride and honour for me and my heart has always been with the teeming fans who have offered me unflinching support throughout the years.”
“After extensive consultation with my family and loved ones, I have come to the decision that the time is ripe to officially hang my boots and retire from international football,” he said.
Badu earned his first Black Stars call up on May 22, 2008, made his debut on June 8, 2008, against Lesotho and his first goal against Congo in June 2011. He last played for the Black Stars in AFCON 2017. Agyeman-Badu, in all, made 78 appearances for the national team and scored 11 goals.
Badu scored the winning penalty against Brazil in the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup final to make Ghana the first African nation to win the tournament.
The former Udinese midfielder currently plays for Hellas Verona in the Serie A.
