2014 World Cup: Massive boost for Ghana as injured Gyimah out for only SIX WEEKS

Published on: 27 January 2014
Edwin Gyimah will be out for six weeks

Injured Ghana midfielder Edwin Gyimah is expected to be out of action for up to six weeks which means he will fit to play for the Black Stars at the World Cup in June if he is selected by coach Kwesi Appiah.

The South Afirca-based utility player, who plays for SuperSport United, will be on the sidelines with a badly twisted ankle.

He is expected to return to action by the middle of March, two months before the World Cup starts in Brazil.

"Gyimah is definitely out of the game against AmaZulu (on Tuesday) due to the injury sustained against Pirates," revealed United team manager Coltrane Munyai.

"He should be out for four to six weeks."

It was originally feared that he would be out of action for six months which means he would not be fit to play in the tournament which ends in July.

The Ghanaian sustained the blow in Matsatsantsa's recent 2-1 victory over Orlando Pirates in Soweto.

His return will give coach Appiah lots of options and headache when he names his squad for the World Cup.

Gyimah is on the periphery of the Black Stars squad.

    Who's this guy and GSN what makes u think he's even considered for selection? We wish him speedy recovery because this marketing strategy by GSN ain't gonna work, do u even realize the number of midfielders we have in the team?.... Amateur propaganda.

    Midfielders who cannot hold a ball. They are defenders and not midfielders

    You guys and this your "massive boost "massive boost" stuff LOL. But come to think of it, who said this chap will make it to the WC? For me he doesn't even qualify to be on the bench let alone play, besides the last time I checked he's plying his trade in a mediocre SA league. A league that is no where near our GPL when it comes to talents or quality so you guys should spare us this crap!
