Ghana have a huge chance of capping PSV Eindhoven striker Memphis Depay as he has been dropped from Holland’s final 21-man squad to play Estonia and Andora in a World Cup qualifier next week.

The 19-year-old, whose father is Ghanaian, was one of the players targeted by Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah to boost the squad of the West Africans as he seeks to build a formidable team.

There were huge fears for the Black Stars on Friday when the talented attacker was included in a provisional squad by Holland coach Louis Van Gaal which could have ended Ghana’s chances of capping the youngster.

But the PSV Eindhoven striker, whose mother is Dutch, has been excluded from the final 21-man squad to play in the matches against Estonia and Andora.

This means Ghana can move to apply for a nationality switch for the youngster if he is interested in playing for the Black Stars.

Holland coach Louis Van Gaal looked to have has moved to cap the player at senior level to prevent Ghana from moving for a nationality switch for the talented youngster.

As the striker has played for the Dutch national Under 17, 19 and 21 teams, Ghana must apply for a nationality switch for the player before he can represent Ghana.

Depay is among several Dutch youngsters who are being rushed for international caps to prevent other countries from capping them.

Full Holland squad to face Estonia and Andorra

Jeffrey Bruma (PSV), Jonathan de Guzman (Swansea City), Daryl Janmaat (Feyenoord), Dirk Kuyt (Fenerbahçe), Jeremain Lens (Dynamo Kiev), Bruno Martins Indi (Feyenoord), Robin van Persie (Manchester United), Arjen Robben (Bayern Munich), Stijn Schaars (PSV), Ruben Schaken (Feyenoord), Kevin Strootman (AS Roma), Rafael van der Vaart (Hamburger SV), Paul Verhaegh (FC Augsburg), Kenneth Vermeer (Ajax), Ron Vlaar (Aston Villa), Michel Vorm (Swansea City), Stefan de Vrij (Feyenoord), Georginio Wijnaldum (PSV), Jetro Willems (PSV), Ricky van Wolfswinkel (Norwich City), Jeroen Zoet (PSV).

    This is our last chance nd i will therefore ask the Ghana football association nd the minister of sport to talk to the boy’s father to convince his son to play for blackstars

  2. Gaskia says:

    I seriously doubt this guy wants to play for Ghana. GNS you make this sound like this guy is up for grabs by both countries, i think the only country in contention here is the Netherlands BUT the GFA should give this a try and and it might work in our favour.

  3. Unknown says:

    Never knew this kid’s dad was Ghanaian, wow.. But dream on GFA, he’s a promising player and he still has plenty of time to prove his worth for the Dutch national squad. I don’t ever see him choosing Ghana over The Netherlands to be honest.

  4. Dr Who says:

    Hé needs to declare his intensions

  5. PITO says:

    Depay is Ghanaian and he recognises that! Why bother to comment when you don’t know? SHUT UP!
    Nyantakyi must speak to this chap personally because he is a sharp attacker with immense Quality. He even takes every free kick for PSV. Imagine a blackstar team consisting of Midfielders: Kwadwo asamoah, Sulley Muntari, Kevin Prince Boateng, Mubarak Wakaso, Andre Ayew, Michael Essien, Agyemang Badu, Christian Atsu. Attackers: Memphis depay, Asamoah Gyan, Richmond Boakye Yiadom, Warris, Jordan Ayew, Acheampong. We then have a shot at winning the world cup in reality.

    We dont need him we have Atsu and Acheampong young talents who also play on the wings look at the squad its good this should be the players going to brazil whitout any doubt

  7. Marshall says:

    DONT MAKE TOO MUCH NOISE BECAUSE WE LOST WIJNALDUM GEORGINO TO THEM ALREADY. HE IS OBVIOUSLY BETTER THAN DEPAY. PLUS DEPAY IS NOT EVEN AS GOOD AS JORDAN AYEW.

    • PITO says:

      You Obviously don’t know what you are on about. Depay has more physical strength, speed and shot. He is a regular for PSV, A right footed player who happens to be similarly good with his left foot so he is utilised mostly as a Left attacking winger in The PSV setup. Depay is way ahead of the some of our Left wingers not naming anyone. Besides he is a more quality right attacking winger when we need someone at that position. Imagine at the worldcup we will require competitive quality against football powerhouses like Holland, Italy, Germany e.t.c so we should not let any got o waste when we have the chance. He is a beast at shot accuracy and we should be encouraging the GFA to work towards capping him for the blackstars rather than perambulating!!!!

  8. it wil be gud to get him…more strikers

  9. u want to get him so u can maltreat and insult him like KP….if this wants his peace of mind, he shd rather play for holland….ghana our nation is full issues

  10. @Ohenenana,We need competition in our team.Weda he z gud or not,lets cap him n c wat e future holds 4 us.He can bcum future Zidane,Ronaldo,Ronaldinho,CR7,Messi,Lewandowski,Ribery or Robben.He can also bcum Eto’0,Drogba,Yahaya Toure of Africa if only he z interested 2 play 4 e black stars,den gfa shud act quick n hnd him a call-up immediately cuz too mch/plenty meat in e soup dats not spoil e taste of e soup.

    gsn ay3 montwer3 brofo papa den ne ”van Gaal looks to have has moved”

  12. b4world says:

    ghana black stars will soon be the mixed race stars,every mixed raced prick with no ties to ghana,wat so ever,could come and use ghana black stars 2 get a big contract and fuck off,wat a joke

    • kantoose says:

      kwasia. why racism for? if they identify as ghanaian thats it.even you are not full ghanaian if i dig inside your life story line. how many blacks in england and france team? even france former captain odenke desailly is now in ghana and helping our football instead and white french people are not complaining. opuro talk sense.

  13. Emeka says:

    IS he a young brother to KPB? He looks rude just like KPB. Wapya baisa wasanga baleteya GHANA 1 ZAMBIA 2 as prophesised.

  14. Papadinho says:

    Ghana international Jordan Ayew has agreed to leave Olympique Marseille on loan to English Premiership side West Bromich Albion.

    The ambitious English club are in the market looking for a finisher following the sudden retirement of their striker Nicolas Anelka just a month after signing him.

    According to Foot01, the Ghanaian youngster has agreed to join Steve Clarke at West Brom as he seeks more playing time to hone his talent.

    The deal is expected to be completed in the coming days as Marseille also see it as an opportunity for their forward to gain more first team experience.

    Ayew was on the verge of joining Nice on loan on the final transfer day of last summer, but the Stade Velodrome outfit opted out.

    Last season he netted six goals for Marseille and won the player of the month twice.

  15. GH Magic says:

    @Papadinho that’s old news which is unlikely to materialise.The latest and most concrete is a loan move to ligue 2 side bastia.

  16. Ru says:

    treat him like Quincy Owusu Abeyie.he shouldn’t come.

  17. GH Panther says:

    i don’t know what the issue is with abeyie but if dats how all these switched players are going to be treated, then for his own good, depay shd avoid ghana.
