Seidu started the game against Madagascar and was replaced in the second half as the Black Stars defeated the island nation in Kumasi.

However, he was an unused substitute in the 1-0 defeat in Moroni against Comoros.

In a video that has since been trending on social media, Seidu is seen dancing to Tyla's global hit, Water.

The defender, in performing the challenge, had his water and sprinkled it on himself as he danced. His teammates burst into laughter as he showed his skills.

Seidu has been an important player for the Ligue 1 side since joining the club in 2019 as a youth team player before graduating to the senior side.

The 23-year-old has been attracting interest from some of the big clubs in France, but a decision has yet to be made about his future.

Seidu has already made ten Ligue 1 appearances this season, per Transfermarkt.

Weah 'destroys' Seidu during Ghana friendly

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Timothy Weah thrilling fans with his skills during the USA versus Ghana friendly in Nashville, Tennessee.

The Juventus winger played a pivotal role as the United States of America strolled to a comprehensive 4-0 victory against the Black Stars.

Timothy, the son of ex-Liberian president George Weah, won a penalty that was converted by Christian Pulisic, before assisting Folarin Balugon.

Comoros beat Ghana in World Cup qualifiers

Sports Brief also reported on Comoros beating Ghana a second time after a 1-0 victory in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers in Moroni on Tuesday.

Myziane Maolida's first-half strike was enough as the small island nation recorded an important win against the four-time champions of Africa.

The Black Stars started the game well, with Inaki Williams linking with Antoine Semenyo, but the Bournemouth forward missed the chance.
