All injured Black Stars players will be fit for Ghana's opening match - Team Doctor

The head of the Black Stars medical staff has categorically stated that the injury problems in camp are being dealt with and has assured that the players will be fit before Sunday

The chief medical officer of the Black Stars, Dr. Baba Adam, says all the injured players in the Ghana camp will recover fully before the west African nation’s opening Group B match against Congo DR on Sunday.

The Black Stars have had some injury concerns during their 11-day stay in Abu Dhabi ahead of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

The likes of Anthony Annan, Isaac Vorsah, Albert Adomah, Rabiu Mohammed and Richmond Boakye Yiadom have all picked injuries.

Adomah and Rabiu returned to training on Tuesday while Vorsah and Annan were involved in some light training.

Boakye-Yiadom limped off from training on Tuesday during the final session in Abu Dhabi.

But Dr. Adam says Ghanaians must not panic since the players will be fit soon.

“We are working around the clock and hopefully by Thursday they should be up and doing.

“On Thursday, I expect all of them to be on the field and Sunday, all things being equal, they should all be fit for the game,” Dr. Adam told reporters in Abu Dhabi.

The Black Stars will leave Abu Dhabi for South Africa on Wednesday.
