Norway FA: We have provided documents for Kwarasey switch

The Norwegian FA says it has submitted all the documents necessary to the Ghana FA to enable Adam Kwarasey switch nationality to play for the Black Stars.

The revelation means the Ghana FA is not working speedily to provide Fifa with its part of the documents to complete the switch.

With all documents available, Fifa approves change of players’ nationality within two weeks as it did with Mali’s Samassa.

The Stromgodset goalkeeper told GHANAsoccernet.com he was frustrated by the long drawn-out process which started last year.

Norway FA letter on Kwarasey

Kwarasey acquired his Ghanaian passport last September and wrote the formal letter to Fifa seeking the switch.

The Norwegian FA says it provided its document in December, which means if the GFA had acted rapidly, the goalkeeper should have been approved by Fifa last year.

“We also confirm that ADAM LARSEN KWARASEY has not at any point played for the Norwegian “A” National Team,” the letter to the Norwegian FA letter to the GFA read.

The goalkeeper was born to a Ghanaian father and a Norwegian mother which makes his eligible to play for the Black Stars.

Kwarasey turned down invitations to play for the European country’s under-21 side two years ago with the hope of playing for Ghana.

The highly-rated youngster is hoping that his form and height will gain him a place in Ghana’s squad for future matches.

Kwarasey has currently been rated as the best goalkeeper in the Norwegian top flight after impressive displays which secured a historic Europa league place for Stromsgodset.

Fifa is yet to respond to GHANAsoccernet.com’s request on the issue while the GFA says it will not comment.
