Adomah and Rabiu boost Ghana with injury return

Ghana have been boosted with the injury return of Rabiu Mohammed and Albert Adomah a few days to the start of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

The two alongside Isaac Vorsah and Anthony Annan missed Monday's training session after picking up injuries.

Rabiu and Adomah sustained minor injuries in the 4-2 friendly win over Tunisia on Sunday.

The duo however returned to full scale training in the Tuesday morning session in Abu Dhabi.

It will serve a massive boost to coach Akwasi Appiah who is looking to have all his players fully fit for Ghana’s Nations Cup opener against DR Congo on Sunday.

Anthony Annan and Isaac Vorsah however continued to watch from the sidelines as they recover from minor injuries.

The Black Stars are expected to train again in the evening ahead of Wednesday's trip to South Africa for the tournament that kicks off on January 19.

Ghana will also face Mali and Niger in the other Group B games in Port Elizabeth.

    Why do people keep saying that Dede didn't want to be part of the team? Is there anything wrong with an injured player asking for time to be treated properly? The best doctor to treat any patient is one who knows the patient's history well. Any other thing will be mere guess work and dangerous to the patient's health. This reflected in how soon Dede recovered. His request was to enable him go to camp in good shape and fit to contribute his quota. The team handlers were simply not patient enough with him. They allowed themselves to be influenced by past events and they probably thought his request was the easiest way out to unjustifiably exclude him from the team. We are even told that his exclusion was celebrated by some players who didn't like his attitude in camp (cf. Jeff on angel fm). Injuries can happen to players at any time just as we are witnessing with some of our players now. So, let's leave the young man alone. After all we've done our worst to him and he is not even complaining. I pray he continues to keep quiet and focus on doing what he knows best. Speedy recovery to the injured players in camp and good luck to the team at the tournament.

    I know that a coach has the chance to change an injured player before the tournament begins. In line with coach AA's "vision of sending only fully fit players to the tournament", I suggest that he replaces Annan. All the conspiracy theories will be exposed.
