Notably, Dwamena’s prowess shone during the International Tournament in Croix, France, in 2013, where he contributed to RB Ghana U17’s silver medal victory and earned the title of Best Player.

Having trained with FC Red Bull Salzburg in Austria alongside David Atanga, Dwamena officially joined Salzburg’s youth team in January 2014.
