Former Obuasi Ashanti Gold striker, Yaw Annor, has successfully switched nationality from Ghana to Togo making him eligible to play for the Sparrow Hawks.
The 24-year-old born to a Ghanaian father and Togolese mother was eligible to represent both West African counties but opted to play for Togo.
Annor, availing himself for Togo, has been included in coach Paulo Duarte’s squad for their upcoming international friendlies against Cote d’Ivoire and Equatorial Guinea.
Togo faces Cote d’Ivoire on September 24, 2022, in Paris, France before taking on Equatorial Guinea three days later in Morocco’s capital, Casablanca.
Yaw Annor now becomes the fourth Ghanaian-born to switch international allegiance to Togo after Kennedy Boateng, Emmanuel Hackman, and Samuel Asamoah.
Yaw Annor who now plies his trade with Egyptian side Ismaily SC joined from Ashgold on a five-year deal following a sterling performance during the 2021-22 football season.
His performance won him the top scorers award of scoring 22 goals in 30 appearances and equalled former Accra Hearts of Oak legend Ismael Addo’s record as the player with the highest number of goals.
