Jeffrey Schlupp has been sensational at Leicester City

Ghana international Jeffrey Schlupp has put Kwesi Appiah on red alert as he readies his team for the World Cup after helping Leicester City to gain promotion back to the English Premier League.

The 21-year-old has been one of Leicester’s key performers this season where his versatility has gone beyond borders, making a bold statement about a potential inclusion into the Black Stars ahead of the 2014 World Cup.

The former Manchester United target was outstanding for the Foxes as they posted a 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday to make return to the summit of English football after a 10-year absence.

The Ghanaian international, who can play as a forward and has been used as a left back, has excelled at that role.

His performances has alerted a number of stellar clubs to take notice and now knocking hard on the doors of Kwesi Appiah ahead of the World Cup.

The Africans have experimented with a number of players at the problematic left-back role without huge success.

Tunisia-based Harrison Afful seems to have stabilized the position but there are many who feel he can operate better if he is shifted to the right-back role – his current role at Esperance.

Schlupp has justified his immense talent and could gatecrash Kwesi Appiah’s squad ahead of the global showpiece in Brazil.

He could be added piece who can turn things around at the back for the West Africans if given the chance to represent the country at the biggest stage of world football.

    AA should monitor him

  2. risky says:

    he is very skillful, pacey, strong and has height.

  3. benny says:

    England will grab him first if he is that good and he will answer England first.
    AA can try him in the forth coming friendlies.I personally don’t see any big deal about the hype Any way that’s my opinion.

    • Fred B Kyeremeh says:

      He cannot play for England.He is half German and half Ghanaian so England doesn’t come into the picture.For Germany,he may not have a chance,hence his decision to play for Ghana.He has already played a friendly for Ghana.I have watched him closely this season and it will not surprise me if Ghana gives him a chance for the World Cup.His versatility as a forward and strangely as a left back will be good for Ghana.I was particularly surprised watching him play that well at left back.His attacking instincts really comes to play even at the back and surprisingly he is defensively very sound.He will do well for Ghana given his current form and confidence level.If the team selectors are fair,they can give him a chance to prove himself.God bless GH.

  4. Nii-Bi says:

    AA and the entire supporting bodies should give him the benefit of doubt to prove himself as it has given to many others!
    May God help Ghana

  5. Blakroze GH says:

  6. jb says:

    @ Benny , pls get your facts right before you start writing nonsense. Schrup is a full fledge Ghana international( thanks to coach Milo) who saw the wisdom to cap him before Germany could strike. He’s extremely talented. Last season he spent over 8 weeks with Sir Ferguson’s United on trial. He’s believed to have impressed heavily but somehow a deal could not be reached. He’s maturing quickly and his inclusion to the Stars squad will be a major boost to our course. Then again, we have to leave the Coaches to make that decision. I can only hope they get it right!

  11. jb says:

    Union leader you are right but pls don’t insult people, we all just having fun

  12. Dr Who says:

    @Union leader,u said it all…our coaches must decide without any mistake.

  13. Union Leader says:

    Grow up Benny , I only described your facts as ‘nonsense’. I don’t think that warrants the kind of insults you are raining on me on here. Be civil.

  14. Benny says:

    Union leader,idiotic animal.jeffery only played in a friendly for Ghana.Besides besides being German ,he needs to stay in England for two more years and he will be eligible to swap his German passport for U.K one.
    What will then stop him from playing for the three lions.Is it you,useless idiot.

  15. skilful says:

    the dude only featured in a friendly for the BS. SO He can still qualify 2 play 4 either Germany or GH. But i must say i like his versatility and he is strong too

  16. Union Leader says:

    Cry me a River !!! @ Benny. You can run your car into a pole , I could care less. You’re wrong, learn from it and move on . It’s called Life. You were enjoying your what ? Did I hear you say Burgers? Bragging about it? Really dude ? You sound like a Retard ! Have you heard about the term junk food ? That’s what it is dude. You re such a cry baby. Get a life ! How else may I help you ?

  17. Union Leader says:

    Fucking Moron ! ( excuse my French ) I know your type. Low life dude living in one of those Eastern European countries who thinks that is all there is in life. You wanna know which Union am I leader ,which one can you think of ? You re such dumbass !

  18. Ken says:

    This article carries a vital information that needs intelligent discussion on Jeffrey but unfortunately that purpose is defeated.
    Can’t we agree to disagree?
    Kwesi Appiah made a mistake of leaving out Waris during AFCON, should we repeat our mistake at the World Cup?
    Jeffrey and Afriyie Acquah’s inclusion will help Ghana a great deal – that is true.

  19. obele says:

    He may be a great addition to the team. Hans adu sarpei, kpb, adam kwarasey etc all opted to play for ghana and their contributions have been immense. Too much meat does not spoil a soup, it rather makes it tasty

  20. Benny says:

    Union leader, you are the most insipid lunatic. Did l read you saying l am wrong. Yes wrong like your father wasted his sperm and your mother wasted nine or in your case 15 months carrying you. Bastard.

  21. joseff says:
