CK Akonnor’s son wins European championship with Germany

Germany emerged victorious over France in the final to claim the UEFA European Under-17 Championship, with Charles Herrmann, the son of former Ghana captain and coach Charles Akonnor, playing a significant role in Germany’s successful campaign.

Throughout the tournament, Herrmann scored one goal and provided four assists. He showcased his abilities in the final, which ended in a goalless draw, by confidently converting his penalty kick during the thrilling shoot-out.

Charles Herrmann, who was born in Hanover, has a brother named Charles Jesaja Herrmann, who currently plays as a striker for FC Kortrijk. Both brothers share the same father, who is highly regarded in Ghanaian football circles.

Charles Jesaja Herrmann, aged 23, has represented Germany at various youth levels, including U-15, U-16, U-17, U-18, and U-19. However, in 2021, he expressed his desire to play for Ghana.
