Ankle injuries pester Ghana camp



The injury situation now in the Black Stars is ebbing and flowing, with news that Anthony Annan will definitely be out of the team's game with Mali.

Port Elizabeth will not see the two players, following a failure to recover in time for the tie. The Spain-based midfielder was a sub for the team as they drew 2-2 draw with DR Congo on Sunday.

He thus joins Richmond Boakye-Yiadom at a local hospital where they are scheduled to know their fates by the end of Wednesday. They will both undergo Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) tests.

A team source tells supersport.com that Annan will "certainly not play" while his teammate, Boakye-Yiadom, has to take a rest for 4-5 days to be fully fine to hit the field.

In Annan's place in defensive midfield will be either of Rabiu Mohammed or, more likely, Derek Boateng.

Predicted Ghana XI v Mali: Fatawu Dauda; John Pantsil, Isaac Vorsah, John Boye, Harrison Afful; Agyemang Badu, Rabiu Mohammed/Derek Boateng; Albert Adomah, Mubarak Wakaso, Kwadwo Asamoah; Asamoah Gyan
