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.
