Moussa Narry was a surprise choice as a Ghanaian international because it had always been assumed he hailed from neighbouring Niger, but it is with the Black Stars that he now enjoys an international profile. But investigations into his heritage while Narry was winning trophies and building a reputation for himself in the colours of Tunisia club Etoile Sahel saw Ghana pick him first ahead of Niger to play in their colours. Narry was born in Maradi, Niger, in April 1986, to a Ghanaian family, and played senior football first at Sahel SC in Niamey. His performance in African club competition against Etoile Sahel saw him quickly signed by the Tunisians and he went on to win the 2006 Confederation of African Football Cup and then a year later played a major role in a historic CAF African Champions League title when Etoile beat Al Ahly of Egypt in a sensational upset result. As a result, Narry and his Etoile team-mates went on a month later to play at the FIFA Club World Cup in Japan in 2007.
After two and a half seasons at Etoile, Narry was signed by Auxerre in France but this past January moved to Le Mans on a six-month loan deal in an attempt to keep alive his chances of making the 2010 FIFA World Cup™ squad. It was coach Claude Le Roy who first drafted Narry into the Ghana national team on the eve of the 2008 CAF Africa Cup of Nations finals, but he has played only a peripheral part since. He competed in just one of the 12 qualifiers that Ghana played en route to a place at the 2010 FIFA World Cup finals in South Africa but still won a place in the squad for the 2010 Nations Cup squad, where Narry again played a single game in Angola to take his caps total to six.
