Massive Memphis Depay boost for Ghana as Holland delay capping PSV attacker

Published on: 01 September 2013
Memphis Depay

Ghana have a huge chance of capping PSV Eindhoven striker Memphis Depay as he has been dropped from Holland's final 21-man squad to play Estonia and Andora in a World Cup qualifier next week.

The 19-year-old, whose father is Ghanaian, was one of the players targeted by Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah to boost the squad of the West Africans as he seeks to build a formidable team.

There were huge fears for the Black Stars on Friday when the talented attacker was included in a provisional squad by Holland coach Louis Van Gaal which could have ended Ghana's chances of capping the youngster.

But the PSV Eindhoven striker, whose mother is Dutch, has been excluded from the final 21-man squad to play in the matches against Estonia and Andora.

This means Ghana can move to apply for a nationality switch for the youngster if he is interested in playing for the Black Stars.

Holland coach Louis Van Gaal looked to have has moved to cap the player at senior level to prevent Ghana from moving for a nationality switch for the talented youngster.

As the striker has played for the Dutch national Under 17, 19 and 21 teams, Ghana must apply for a nationality switch for the player before he can represent Ghana.

Depay is among several Dutch youngsters who are being rushed for international caps to prevent other countries from capping them.

Full Holland squad to face Estonia and Andorra

Jeffrey Bruma (PSV), Jonathan de Guzman (Swansea City), Daryl Janmaat (Feyenoord), Dirk Kuyt (Fenerbahçe), Jeremain Lens (Dynamo Kiev), Bruno Martins Indi (Feyenoord), Robin van Persie (Manchester United), Arjen Robben (Bayern Munich), Stijn Schaars (PSV), Ruben Schaken (Feyenoord), Kevin Strootman (AS Roma), Rafael van der Vaart (Hamburger SV), Paul Verhaegh (FC Augsburg), Kenneth Vermeer (Ajax), Ron Vlaar (Aston Villa), Michel Vorm (Swansea City), Stefan de Vrij (Feyenoord), Georginio Wijnaldum (PSV), Jetro Willems (PSV), Ricky van Wolfswinkel (Norwich City), Jeroen Zoet (PSV).

    @Papadinho that's old news which is unlikely to materialise.The latest and most concrete is a loan move to ligue 2 side bastia.

    Ghana international Jordan Ayew has agreed to leave Olympique Marseille on loan to English Premiership side West Bromich Albion. The ambitious English club are in the market looking for a finisher following the sudden retirement of their striker Nicolas Anelka just a month after signing him. According to Foot01, the Ghanaian youngster has agreed to join Steve Clarke at West Brom as he seeks more playing time to hone his talent. The deal is expected to be completed in the coming days as Marseille also see it as an opportunity for their forward to gain more first team experience. Ayew was on the verge of joining Nice on loan on the final transfer day of last summer, but the Stade Velodrome outfit opted out. Last season he netted six goals for Marseille and won the player of the month twice.

    You Obviously don't know what you are on about. Depay has more physical strength, speed and shot. He is a regular for PSV, A right footed player who happens to be similarly good with his left foot so he is utilised mostly as a Left attacking winger in The PSV setup. Depay is way ahead of the some of our Left wingers not naming anyone. Besides he is a more quality right attacking winger when we need someone at that position. Imagine at the worldcup we will require competitive quality against football powerhouses like Holland, Italy, Germany e.t.c so we should not let any got o waste when we have the chance. He is a beast at shot accuracy and we should be encouraging the GFA to work towards capping him for the blackstars rather than perambulating!!!!

    This is our last chance nd i will therefore ask the Ghana football association nd the minister of sport to talk to the boy's father to convince his son to play for blackstars
  • Gaskia says:
    September 01, 2013 08:50 am
    I seriously doubt this guy wants to play for Ghana. GNS you make this sound like this guy is up for grabs by both countries, i think the only country in contention here is the Netherlands BUT the GFA should give this a try and and it might work in our favour.
  • Unknown says:
    September 01, 2013 09:02 am
    Never knew this kid's dad was Ghanaian, wow.. But dream on GFA, he's a promising player and he still has plenty of time to prove his worth for the Dutch national squad. I don't ever see him choosing Ghana over The Netherlands to be honest.
  • Jaja says:
    September 01, 2013 09:08 am
    He grew up without father, he left his mother when he was 4 years old. So his Ghanaian ties are not all that strong, to be honest.

    Depay is Ghanaian and he recognises that! Why bother to comment when you don't know? SHUT UP! Nyantakyi must speak to this chap personally because he is a sharp attacker with immense Quality. He even takes every free kick for PSV. Imagine a blackstar team consisting of Midfielders: Kwadwo asamoah, Sulley Muntari, Kevin Prince Boateng, Mubarak Wakaso, Andre Ayew, Michael Essien, Agyemang Badu, Christian Atsu. Attackers: Memphis depay, Asamoah Gyan, Richmond Boakye Yiadom, Warris, Jordan Ayew, Acheampong. We then have a shot at winning the world cup in reality.
