The popular gospel singer from Ghana, Sonnie Badu, is advocating for Daniel Afriyie Barnieh to be named to the final Black Stars lineup for the FIFA World Cup in 2022.
The talented Hearts of Oak forward, according to Sonnie Badu, has earned a spot on the national team by making enough contributions over the last 12 months.
“Dear Coach Otto Addo and @ghana_fa_official, we are praying for you.
“We know you are doing all you can to make us proud. In this light. I highly recommend the inclusion of this local based play… @afriyiebdaniel he has proven beyond doubt that he is capable and he has been very instrumental.

“Black stars B which is black galaxy; qualified for Chan and Black stars as well, his inclusion in the World Cup team will be great .. I pray for the Lords blessing and wisdom on you all,” Sonnie Badu posted on his Instagram page.
Daniel Afriyie Barnieh is listed on the preliminary roster of 55 players that Ghana coach Otto Addo submitted to FIFA, according to sources.
He may or may not make the final 26-man roster, though.
