My international future undecided – Appiah

Caen right-back Dennis Appiah says he is still unsettled on which nation to pledge his international future.

Born to a Ghanaian father in France, the 23-year-old is eligible to represent either nation at senior level, and the issue has become prominent over the past months following Appiah’s fine form in Ligue 1 this season.

The defender has played every minute of all 30 league matches for Patrice Garande’s side this season.

“I think about it from time to time, and it’s true that it [international future] has been much talked about this season,” Appiah told Goal.

“But it is the media that has forced me into thinking about it because I was previously not thinking about it at all.

“France and Ghana both have a great team with a lot of great players, and it would be flattering to be called up by either side.

“But I have not made my choice, and I think this is not the time because a lot can happen from now before I make my choice.”

Having already represented France under-17, 18, 19 and 20 levels, the full-back, however, admits a soft spot for the 1998 world champions.

“But there’s a slight preference for France because I played for them at various youth levels,” Appiah revealed.

“I have not been to Ghana so often, but their call would be a difficult one to turn down.

“So if Ghana calls me and ask me to choose, I will give it a serious thought.”

Appiah joined Caen from Monaco in 2013.
