The best and worst of Ghanaian players abroad

Good: Jeffrey Schlupp: Fresh from winning Crystal Palace’s Player for the Month of February award, having scored twice, provided one assist and won a penalty during the period, Schlupp began March on a high as The Eagles dispatched Burnley 3-1 in the English Premier League on Saturday. This time around, he forced a Burnley own goal as his ball was diverted by Phillip Bardsley into his own net to put Palace 1-0 up.

Too Bad: Kasim Nuhu Adams: A summer signing from Swiss club Young Boys, Adams picked his second red card in Hoffenheim colours when Die Kraichgauer visited Eintracht Frankfurt in the German Bundesliga on Saturday. His marching orders for a second bookable offence gave a numerical advantage to the hosts, who capitalize to come from 2-1 down to register a 3-2 triumph at Commerzbank-Arena.

Too Bad: Bernard Mensah – An injury saw the Atletico Madrid loanee withdrawn on 33 minutes as his Kayserispor outfit settled for a 2-2 home draw with Besiktas in the Turkish Super Lig on Saturday. Reports say the midfielder is expected to spend between four and five weeks on the sidelines.

Too Bad: Dauda Mohammed – After a clumsy air challenge, the Anderlecht loanee could not continue Saturday’s Dutch Eredivisie game between Vitesse Arnhem and NAC Breda. He was replaced in just the 33rd minute as his side registered a 4-1 victory. It was only his second start for Vitas following his loan switch in January.

Too Good: Ebenezer Ofori – It was a fine start to Major League Soccer season for New York City FC’s Ofori, who netted the opener in what ended a 2-2 away draw with Orlando City FC on matchday one. He rejoined the club in January following a first loan deal last year.

Too Good: William Owusu – The striker netted his seventh goal of the season for Royal Antwerp as they beat AS Eupen 2-1 in the Belgian topflight on Sunday. He has so far made 26 league appearances involving 16 starts this campaign.

Too Good: Eric Ocansey: While Owusu and Antwerp left Bosuilstadion with utmost joy, Ocansey departed with a bittersweet memory as he grabbed Eupen’s consolation goal. It was the 21-year-old’s second league strike of the term.
