Abdul Majeed Waris and Kevin-Prince Boateng miss Black Stars first training session in Maceio

Published on: 12 June 2014
Kevin-Prince Boateng

Abdul Majeed Waris and Kevin-Prince Boateng were the absentees at Ghana’s first training session in Maceio on Thursday afternoon.

The pair could not partake in the drills at the Estadio Rei Pele as they continue their preparations for Monday’s opener against USA in Natal.

They spent the afternoon at the team’s Radisson Hotel.

Waris injured his left thigh during last week’s final warm-up against South Korea at the Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida.

The Spartak Moscow striker has been told he will need ten days to recover and return to training.

Schalke 04’s Boateng also look to have picked up knock in the friendly and has to be observed by medical team.

African understands their inability to complain is a precautionary one to get them in shape

    I wonder why we took KPB I said it before that no doubt he is a good player but who wants to take a player to a tournament of such magnitude and you play one game and need to go to the sick bed for the other. Even with Majeed if he is injured we can drop him and take someone else it is not the individuals that wins anything but team work. We still haven't found our cohesion and players are already not training with the team AA should just watch out.

    Good news guys! I watched the match again last night! It was a very close and intense game but Ghana prevailed at the end of 90 mins. We scored first and they drew back. We lead again but they fought back really hard and drew again. But Ghana played some good passes between the 80 - 86 min that lead to our third goal of the day. GHA 3 - 2 USA Pray for the Black Stars!

    The truth hurts. It is unfortunate that we will lose to USA by 3 goals to 1Dede Ayew to score the only goal. That was revealed to me
