"I have spotted 5 players in Dutch junior teams who want to play for Ghana" - Coach Kwasi Appiah

Black Stars coach James Kwasi Appiah is currently touring Europe to scout for players for the senior national team the Black Stars.

The former Asante Kotoko full back embarked on the trip on Monday 8th October 2019 and was in the Netherlands and Belgium for most part of the weekend and will leave there for Spain later today.

According to the Coach he came when they were on International break but he chose that time because he has seen some of the players play a lot of time but needed to talk to them in person.

"I have been visiting the players. I have been to Holland and Belgium. I have spotted about four to five players.I have seen them play a lot of times but I needed to see them and talk to them in person.

"Because some of them are willing to play for Ghana and others do not want to so you will have to see them and talk to them"

"Out of the five I have spoken to from Holland they are all willing to play for the Black Stars but there are some of them who have played for the junior national teams of Holland so we will have to do a nationality switch for them"

" There are one or two players in Belgium too who want to represent Ghana but in Belgium there are some of them who have never played for any of their junior teams so with them it's easy to bring them on board"

"We will look at those who are playing top flight football and are ready for the Black Stars" he said.

He hinted that those he is scouting there are a lot of strikers in them.

"Those I'm scouting there are a lot of strikers in the list all that is needed is that they are willing and ready to play for Ghana" he stressed.

The coach who has already been in Holland, Belgium will on Monday go to Spain and then move to the U.K from there he will travel to Denmark before returning to Ghana
