Ghana defender Jerry Akaminko underwent a successful ankle surgery in Miami on Friday after twisting his fibula in last Saturday’s pre-World Cup warm-up against the Netherlands.

The Turkey based landed awkwardly on his left ankle rupturing his fibula which has ruled him out of the World Cup.

The 26-year-old will be out for two months but should be ready for pre-season ahead of the Super Lig.

“Akaminko has undergone successful surgery and his recuperation begins in earnest and if all goes according to plan he should be back on the field in sixty days,” a statement read.

He is currently with the Black Stars team in Miami as the rest of his international teammates finalize preparations for the World Cup in Brazil.

    I really don't understand why AA keep on calling Inkoom & Adoma into the team. He should have replaced inkoom with Ainoson & Adoma with Schulp. How do you got into a tournament like the wc with only six defenders? But then, that is Dr. AA for you.

    Assemblyman,you are entitled to your opinion but to say inkoom should have been in clutches is a terrible thing to say,and remember whatever you wish for someone may come back to know how painful it is to get injured over for couple months?,I think you utterance sounds rather childish.

    REAL SABACIOUS Remember when we had white coaches, it was mostly players managed by Virtous International representing Ghana in such high profile tournaments true or false? Appiah did what he deems best for his job as a coach. Let's gladly and patiently give him the chance to exhibit what he has in store.

    @Benito he said the guy is a waste of space on the bench and does the gospel truth! Some players have bought their way into the team by soo called *gift*no wonder most of us prefer A white coach and not east European or a local

    Yo! Benito,don't mind me oo..I am here to talk my mind and finish.i am not here to please anyone ..I don't see the usefulness of blockheaded player like Inkoom in the squad ..except that he is one of the coaches favorites
