Jeffrey Schlupp Players

Ghana defender Jeffery Schlupp grabbed a late winner as Leicester City recovered from a goal down to beat Tottenham Hotspurs 2-1 in the English FA Cup on Saturday.

The 22-year-old left-back struck the match-winner in the 90th minute following Jose Ulloa’s 83rd-minute equalizer that cancelled out the 18th minute opener of Andros Townsend that came from the penalty spot.

The German-born Ghanaian has scored just 1 goal in 2 English FA Cup appearances and struck 3 goals in 18 games in the Premier League.

Schlupp had to remain with Leicester City and miss the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations with the Black Stars of Ghana after sustaining an injury.
