Chelsea youth star Danny Pappoe has been promoted to join Ghana’s senior national team camp despite arriving in Accra on Monday to train with the country’s U20 side, can reveal.

The 19-year-old, who is the captain of the English club’s youth side, appeared in training on Tuesday which came as a shock for fans gathered at the stadium.

That is because he was not part of the 25-man squad named by coach Kwesi Appiah to play in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers against Sudan and Lesotho

Pappoe faced no problems adjusting and coping the players as he is already known to the top players like Sulley Muntari, Kwadwo Asamoah, Samuel Inkoom and Asamoah Gyan.

The huge young defender trained perfectly with the players and it is not known if he will travel with the team to its camping base in Ethiopia.

If he is unable to travel with them he will join the Black Satellites who are preparing for the U20 World Cup in Turkey next month.

Pappoe is one of a few foreign-based players called to augment the Black Satellites team ahead of next month’s FIFA U20 World Cup in Turkey.

The Chelsea youth team captain is expected to join the Back Satellites camp on Wednesday as preparations continue for the World Cup.

Pappoe becomes the fourth foreign-based player to arrive for Ghana’s U20 camp.

He joins Anderlecht’s Frank Acheampong, Thomas Tei Patey of Atletico Madrid and Anthony Manison of Rayo Vallecano who have already reported to the Black Satellites camp.

    Ghana have great players but team selections is a problem for Kwasi Appiah,he's not been allow to make his own decision.No local player deserve to in Ghana team right except goal keepers. All the players player Ghana have right now are playing in overseas.The local players need win African competition for Ghana before the justify their inclusion..

    He's there to train! I bet he is already better than Lee Addy and even some of the central defenders who have previously played for Ghana.
