NATHANIEL ASAMOAH

NATHANIEL ASAMOAH

Nathaniel Asamoah is the star striker of Wa All Stars FC, the most northern club in the GLO Premier League 2010-2011 and a club well-known for having faith in young, talented players. David Nii Addy, the left-back of FC Porto, is arguably the most famous player who has played for the club the recent years. Other names to be mentioned are Bright Addae, only 17 but already a full international player for Ghana and reportedly prepared to sign for Parma in Italy. Issah Salihu, who is performing well for Kessben FC, is another brilliant ex-player.

Nathaniel Asamoah, born 22.02.1990, could very well be the next name in the “Hall of Fame”of Wa All Stars FC. He is currently in his fourth season for his club and is arguably their most important player at the time of writing. Asamoah is currently number two at the list of “Top goalscorers” in the GLO Premier League, having scored 3 goals in 8 matches.  

The first time Nathaniel Asamoah was in the spotlight of Ghanaian football was in December 2006, when he was named in the squad for the so-called Black Starlets – the U-17 national team of Ghana, apparently while playing for a third division side called Subway FC. Asamoah was a regular for Ghana U-17 during 2007.

He started the 2007-2008 season at second division club International Allies FC, playing alongside Solomon Addy (now AshantiGold SC) and Anum Lanquaye (now Kessben FC). Asamoah impressed with speed and clinical finishes and was invited for trials by Trelleborgs IF from Sweden. He did not get a contract, apparently because he was not ready to be a regular in the starting eleven.

His obvious talent was nevertheless noticed by the officials of Wa All Stars FC and Asamoah made his Premier League-debut the same season, 2007-2008. He scored his first goal in the Premier League on 28.06.2008, nodding in from a corner kick against Gamba All Blacks FC.

Asamoah did not score any league goals in 2008-2009, apparently being used mostly as a right-winger. However, in 2009-2010 he made his breakthrough in Ghanaian football, being top goalscorer for his club. I am able to document 10 league goals in 2009-2010. Asamoah was named in the squad of Ghana B in February 2010.

There has been a lot of speculation about Asamoah and he has apparently been invited for several trials. It is a fact that he played some friendly matches for CD Badajoz (Spain) in the summer of 2010 but as far as I know, no contracts have yet been signed.

Asamoah is described as an excellent counter-attack player and a speedy attacker / winger. He is sometimes used as a lone striker. His full name is Nathaniel Ohene Asamoah and he is apparently 179 centimeters and 79 kilos.
