Sulemana and Felix Afena Gyan among the top 100 nominees for the 2022 Golden Boy award
Kamaldeen Sulemana, who was nominated in the previous edition, made the list again after his impressive performance in the French Ligue 1 with Stade Rennais.
The winger scored four goals in 20 league games for the Red and Blacks as they finished 4th in the league table.
Felix Afena-Gyan, who also enjoyed a good campaign with Italian giants AS Roma, made the cut.
The attacker played 17 Serie A matches and scored two goals. He also contributed to AS Roma’s success in winning the Europa Conference League.
The award, which is given by sports journalists to the best young footballer in Europe over a calendar year, will be pruned along the line with the best player below the age of 21 being named at the end of the year.
Four other players of Ghanaian descent are on the list of 100 players nominated for the award, which is organized by the Italian sports portal Tuttusport.
Barcelona’s Pedro González López won the 2021 edition, while Man City’s new signing Erling Haaland won the 2020 edition following his great performance.
