Getting to know Andy Yiadom!

19 May 2018

Yiadom was born in England to Ghanaian parents and he only made his Black Stars debut last year in a 1–0 defeat to Egypt.

Andy will come up against Jon Dadi Bodvarsson's Iceland next in another World Cup warm-up game for their opponents - taking on his future Reading teammate on Thursday 7th June. 

These friendlies come ahead of Ghana's next competitive fixture, a September's clash with Kenya in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign.
