Crystal Palace’s Schlupp baffled as he is credited with Ghana goal – despite not playing

JEFFREY SCHLUPP was left bemused by a mix-up that saw him credited with a goal for his country despite the fact he did not play.

Ghana beat Kenya 1-0 in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the Ohene Djan Sports Stadium in Accra yesterday but the Crystal Palace winger did not play a single minute.

Debutant Caleb Ekuban scored the winner as Schlupp's nation secured qualification for the 2019 tournament in Egypt.

But apparently, no one told the Confederation of African Football (CAF) as they credited the former Leicester winger with the goal instead.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, they congratulated the 26-year-old on the 82nd minute winner but the Palace man was quick to point out their mistake.

He tweeted simply: "I didn't play or score…"

I didn’t play or score …😅😅 https://t.co/nDYWZgqbKK

Crystal Palace signed Schlupp in January 2017 for around £12.5million after he won a Premier League winners medal during Leicester's historic 2015/16 title winning campaign.

The winger has five goals and three assists from 33 Palace appearances this season.

They are 14th in the Premier League and were recently knocked out of the FA Cup by Watford.
