Reading midfielder James Harper has turned down the opportunity to play for Ghana at the World Cup finals in Germany this summer.
Harper would not feel right playing for Ghana
Harper, who last month signed a new two-year deal at the club, qualifies to play for the African country because his mother was born there.
The 25-year-old told the Evening Post: "I've never even been to Ghana.
"I don't know the colour of their flag and it's not my country. I wouldn't feel right putting on the shirt."
