2014 World Cup: Ghana provisional squad leaked – Schlupp, Frimpong named; Vorsah, Annan return


Ghana’s provisional 2014 World Cup squad has been leaked with Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah reported said to have shockingly included England-based duo of Emmanuel Frimpong and Jeff Schlupp in the 30-man team.

Another shock inclusion is Germany-based star Anthony Annan as well as Isaac Vorsah who were huge doubts for the competition in Brazil in June.

The list released by the state news agency, Ghana News Agency, claimed that Aduana Stars goalkeeper Stephen Adams is the only home-based shot-stopper in the squad.

He is among four goalkeepers that includes Norway-based Adam Kwarasey and the South Africa-based duo of Daniel Agyei and Fatua Dauda.

According to the state owned news agency, GNA, a trusted source has revealed that Appiah named Leicester City’s Schlupp among the ten selected defenders which will be pruned to 23 for the competition.

Frimpong is among 12 midfielders expected to begin preparations on May 26, ahead of the World Cup; Ghana’s third in succession.

According to the source, Aduana Star’s goalkeeper, Stephen Adams remains the only locally-based player in the team that includes four goalkeepers.

Also named in the squad is Italian Serie A side, Sassoulo’s Yussif Raman Chibsah. Making a return after months of absence are Anthony Annan and Isaac Vorsah.

Appiah is said to have presented the list to the Ghana Football Association (GFA) ahead of the official submission to the global body, Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) next month.

Ghana is housed in Group G alongside, USA, Germany and Portugal.
