Barnieh made an appearance at the last minute for the Black Stars in friendlies against Nicaragua.
However, he appeared in the first XI for the team on Thursday in a friendly match against Switzerland.
The 21-year-old started on the right side alongside the Ayew brothers to provide support to his co-striker Inaki Williams.
In the first half of the game, Barnieh made an impressive run, terrorising the Swiss defence and also providing an attacking spark for the Black Stars.
Ghanaians have been taken aback by the performance of the Hearts of Oak striker.
Some of the comments flying on social media suggest that the forward plays very well compared to Real Madrid’s forward Vinicius Jnr and Barcelona striker Ansu Fati.
The game ended 2-0 in favour of the Black Stars.
Some also believe that ex-Hearts of Oak Coach, Samuel Boadu would be proud of himself since he has been the backbone to Barnieh’s rise.
However, another comment suggested that Ghanaians should not pressure the head Coach, Otoo Addo in starting Daniel Afriyie Barnieh who gave spectators an impressive performance.
