Chelsea U21 captain Daniel Pappoe is on cloud nine after training with the Black Stars for the first time in his burgeoning career.

The defender was permitted to train with the senior national team-who are preparing for next week’s double World Cup qualifiers-on Tuesday.

Pappoe was heartened with the opportunity to train with some renowned footballers like Asamoah Gyan and Sulley Muntari.

“I have trained with the Chelsea first team a lot of times but to come and train with your country, to see people that love the country is a different feeling,” Pappe told Accra-based Joy FM.

“People play for the club but when you play for where you were born, it is something different.

“A lot of people do not get the chance to train with them but for me to train with them is a great feeling.”

Papoe has been invited to join Ghana’s U20 team prepare for the upcoming 2013 FIFA World Youth Championship in Turkey.
