Moussa Narry (born April 19, 1986 in Maradi as Moses Narh) is a Ghanaian-Nigerien football midfielder who currently plays for Al Sharjah SC.

Career[edit]

The midfielder began his career in his homeland Niger with Sahel SC who was in 2006 sold to Étoile Sportive du Sahel. He played in Tunisia two years for Étoile du Sahel.Narry won the CAF champions league with the side. He signed in July 2008 with AJ Auxerre.[2]

International career[edit]

Narry was a surprise choice as a Ghanaian international because it had always been assumed he hailed from neighbouring Niger. However, investigations into his heritage revealed he was born in Niger to a Ghanaian family, and therefore elegible for both Ghana and Niger.[3] On 18 November 2007 he made his Senior International debut for Ghana in their 2–0 win[4] against Togo and on 18 December 2007, Narry was called up by Ghana as part of the 40-man squad[5] for their 2-week Pre-2008 African Cup of Nations Tournament Training Camp in Dubai scheduled to open on 5 January 2008.He also played at the 2010 Nations Cup. His only game was the 3-1 drubbing by Cote D'Ivoire. [6]
