Injured Stars for Thursday return



Ghana's injured players are expected to be fit for action on Thursday, according to the team doctor. Baba Adamu has had his treatment table full in recent days, following niggles and strains for some of the players.

"The injury situation of my team is not too bad. On my injury list I have four of the athletes," Dr. Adamu said.

Describing the nature of the injuries, the doctor assured the team's commitment to getting the players up and running in no time.

''Isaac Vorsah who had a knock on his right thigh, Anthony Annan had a twist on his left ankle joint, Rabiu had a knock on his thigh too and the last but not the least is Richmond Boakye-Yiadom. He had a sprained on his right ankle joint at training on Tuesday."

A series of training sessions in Abu Dhabi ended on Wednesday as the side flew down south to the tournament venue. ''On the whole, we're working around the clock. Hopefully by Thursday, they should be up and doing."

Port Elizabeth will be where the team is based, but before then Adamu expects all convalescing cases to be sorted.''So by Thursday I expect all of them to be on the field and Sunday all things being equal, they should all be fit for the game," he added.

''We had our general medical rounds last night. So far, so good. Just the way we came, everything is fine. 'Apart from those I have mentioned, the rest have a clean sheet of fitness to play the game on Sunday.''
