World Cup 2014: Kwesi Appiah delighted loan stars abroad are making impact

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah is delighted his players are now earning playing time abroad as he readies to name his squad for 2014 Brazil World Cup finals.

During the January transfer window, some World Cup-bound players changed clubs in search of regular game time and that seems to be coming to fruition.

Defender Samuel Inkoom has been a regular for Greek top-flight side Platanias since joining them on a six-month loan spell.

Striker Jordan Ayew is also on loan at Sochaux from Marseille and has been a starter.

Abdul Majeed Waris has scored two goals for Valenciennes since joining from Russian side Spartak Moscow on loan.

Experienced midfielder Michael Essien was down the pecking order at Chelsea and signed a permanent deal with AC Milan.

He was handed his full debut on Sunday in Milan’s 3-1 defeat at Napoli in the Serie A.

“I am happy with the loan moves made by the players. It helps the players and us too,” Appiah told Asempa FM.

“I have always said that if you (player) have a team, you have a chance of playing at the World Cup and the good thing is that you are playing day-in-day-out and that boosts your confidence.

“I am happy for Michael Essien, Jordan Ayew, Samuel Inkoom and Abdul Majeed Waris because they are now playing.

“If everybody has a club and playing it helps.”

Ghana will play Montenegro on 5 March in a pre-World Cup friendly.

    I have always tipped these below crop of players to make the 23 man squad:
    Goalkeepers: Adam Kwaresey, Fatau Dauda, Francis Adjei

    Defenders: Baba Rahman, Jonathan Mensah, John Boye, Daniel Opare, Isaac Vorsah, Jerry Akaminko, Rashid Sumaila,
    Midfielders: Michael Essien, Albert Adomah, Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu, Kwadwo Asamoah , Sulley Muntari ,Afriyie Aquah, Andre Ayew, Christian Atsu, Rabiu Mohammed, Wakaso Mubarak

    Strikers: Majeed Waris, Asamoah Gyan, Kevin-Prince Boateng
    These players throughout our qualifiers both in the world cup and Africa cup as well as the Africa cup tournament in 2013 have acquired the class of possibly being selected into the BS team, no doubt about that but what they need is to maintain their form in order to be part of the 23-man squad else they can be ejected by these next crop of players though the road is long for these players and need to work extra harder because in football anything is possible. These players could possibly break into the above class of players:
    Goalkeepers: Stephen Adams, Razak Braihimah, Richard Kingston

    Defenders: Masahudu Alhassan, Nana Akwasi Asare, Lee Addy, Seth Konadu, Abeiku Ainooson, Kwabena Adusei, Nuru Sulley, Godfred Saka, Joshua Tijani, David Addy, Harrison Afful, Richard Kissi Boateng, Samuel Nkoom
    Midfielders: Alfred Duncan, Maxwell Acosty, Isaac Cofie, Enock Adu Kofi, Kwame Quansah Isaac Sackey, Bismark Adjei-Boateng, Ishmael Yartey, Seidu Salifu, Emmanuel Frimpong, Rahman Chibsah, Frank Acheampong, Bennard Kumordzi, Edwin Gyimah, Solomon Asante

    Strikers: Jeffrey Schulpp; Oduro; Shadrach Eghan, Ebenezer Assifuah, Samuel Afum, John Antwi, Jordan Ayew, Richmond Boakye-Yiadom, Dominic Adiyiyah
