Earning Black Stars call-up at the age 19 was crazy – Ibrahim Osman

Ghana attacker, Ibrahim Osman has described his maiden Black Stars call-up as crazy.

After his impressive outings with Danish side, FC Nordsjaelland, Osman was named in Black Star squad for the friendly games against Nigeria and Uganda in March earlier this year.

Reflecting on his national team debut, Osman shared his initial nerves and eventual realisation of the achievement.

“I was quite nervous but people have been telling me ‘you’ll play at [in] the national team’ so I wasn’t really sure about it,” Osman told 3Sports.

“So when I got there that was when I realized that, it was real. I am on the national team. 19-year-old at the national team it was crazy,” he added.

He was also named in Black Stars’ squad that recorded back-to-back wins against Mali and Central African Republic in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

Osman’s remarkable season with FC Nordsjaelland saw him net six goals and provide seven assists in 29 league games, attracting interest from top European clubs.

Ultimately, he decided to join Brighton and Hove Albion in the Premier League, where he is set to reunite with fellow Ghanaian Tariq Lamptey.
