Club career[edit]

Pappoe was born in Accra. Prior to joining AEK Larnaca in summer 2007, Pappoed plied his trade in the Israeli Premier League, playing two seasons each with F.C. Ashdod (2003–05) and Hapoel Kfar Saba (2005–07) and for Hapoel Haifa up until December 2009.[1] He left Beitar Shimshon Tel Aviv of the Israeli Liga Leumit in October 2010 and returned to his youth club Liberty Professionals F.C..[2]

International career[edit]

Pappoe was part of the Ghanaian 2004 Olympic football team who exited in the first round, having finished in third place in group B. His hard work earned him a call-up to the senior side, making his debut against Sierra Leone on 19 October 2002.[citation needed]

He was selected to represent the nation at the 2006 FIFA World Cup, where he made two appearances in four matches, as the unfancied Africans bowed out to world powers Brazil in the round-of-16 match.[3]
