Ernest Nuamah is another fantastic fruit of Right to Dream Academy’s superb partnership with FC Nordsjaelland. He is tipped to follow in the footsteps of Mohammed Kudus, Kamaldeen Sulemana, and Simon Adingra. He joined the Danish club in January 2022. He made his Superligaen debut on 10 April 2022 when he came on in the 67th minute for Magnus Andersen to score an 84th minute goal in a 2–2 draw against Aarhus GF. Ernest’s development has been nothing but impressive so far and this season he became an absolute star of the current league leaders.


“At Right to Dream, I have learned to adapt to new challenges and be thorough in my work. Expectations are high at the academy, so I have learned a lot over the years, which has helped me become a better football player and teammate.”
