Boakye-Yiadom down as injury list grows



Richmond Boakye-Yiadom injured himself while training with the Black Stars on Tuesday evening in Abu Dhabi. He collided with a teammate while going in hard on a tackle.

With the medical team already worrying about injuries to Anthony Annan and Isaac Vorsah, this is the last thing they would have wanted. The 19-year old forward will make the trip to the hospital on Wednesday.

The medical team have however told supersport.com that there is no need to panic, despite up to four players missing Ghana's training session on Monday.

Albert Adomah, who scored in Ghana's 4-2 win against Tunisia, sat out together with Isaac Vorsah, Rabiu Mohammed and Anthony Annan.

"All the players who are resting did so because we do not want to risk anything at all," a member of the medical team tells supersport.com. "We simply do not want to take any chances, that's why."

The Black Stars fly out of Abu Dhabi on Wednseday to Port Elizabeth in South Africa where they settle before kickoff of the tournament on Saturday.
