Ghanaian striker Dominic Oduro is considering switching allegiance to the United States of America after constantly being overlooked for international call-ups.

Oduro, who plays for Major League side Montreal Impact, is capped once after featuring for the Africans during an international friendly against Chile in 2012.

The 29-year-old has since not been called up despite churning out impressive performances in the MLS with Chicago Fire and latest Montreal Impact.

?I am a Ghanaian. I was born and raised there. I hope to earn a call up to play for the Black Stars but if things don?t change, something will happen,? Oduro told Goal.

The former Toronto FC man has revealed he?s frustrated with the lack of attention and hints of switching allegiance if he is continuously snubbed by the West Africans.

?I still need to work hard and stay focused on Major League Soccer, but will be changing my nationality this year if I fail to earn an invitation from Ghana. Whether I will play for USA or Canada will be a subject for discussion later.

?Changing my nationality is currently not a priority because I want to concentrate on the ongoing season until the end. A lot of things are in the pipeline.

The e x- Columbus Crew attacker can switch allegiance as friendly games do not commit a player to one country according to FIFA rules amended in 2009.
