Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah is delighted to be operating an injury-free camp in the Netherlands ahead of the 2014 World Cup.

The Black Stars are currently in Arnhem to intensify their preparations towards June’s finals in Brazil.

The only injury concern was the minor cut on the lip of goalkeeper Stephen Adams during Monday’s training session but the Black Stars medical team have assured it is nothing to worry about.

The whole team has been going about their training regimen in full fitness, something that delights coach Kwesi Appiah.

“There are so many countries who are suffering from these kind of petty injuries but thank God we’ve had no injuries at the moment and as I said everyone is doing well,” he said.

The team will continue with their preparations in Arnhem for the next few days before moving to Rotterdam for their friendly match against the Netherlands on Saturday.

The Black Stars will then move camp to the USA to conclude their preparations for the World Cup on June 1.

    I want to thank Stephen Adams for taking one for the team, instead of taking out our star player Asamoah Gyan. If it was Dauda, Ghana might be without its current all time goal scorer. It shows you have to have brains as well as braun to be a good goalkeeper and also a good defender. I will however advise Stephen during the real deal at the World Cup protect yourself when you go for aerial balls. We need you for all the games that will be decided by penalty kicks. OK! Dr Coach Appiah you are doing a great job with the lads, expect an injury free camp. Train and work them hard but save the best for Brazil where it really counts. Win 10-0 against the Netherlands and it does not mean squat in the World Cup especially if you end up with injured stars.

    Why Arnhem? Is the climate similar to that of Brazil. Maybe AA want to strategize using the OPERATION MARKET GARDEN formular. B.S was better off to Train In South Africa.
