PAPPOE OUT OF U20 WORLD CUP

Chelsea Under-21 team centre-back Danny Pappoe will not be playing in the Under-20 World Cup which begins this week.

Pappoe was called up to the Ghana squad for the first time for the tournament in Turkey. The Ghana FA report the player experienced some swelling to his knee during preparations in Switzerland and it had become difficult for him to combine training and the tournament schedule.

He was born in the Ghanaian capital Accra but having moved to London when young, joined Chelsea at Under-12 level.
