Injured Adams Kwarasey pulls out of Ghana squad, Foli Adade invited as replacement

The Stromsgodset goalkeeper has pulled out of Ghana’s squad ahead of Friday’s match against Zambia because of injury

Ghana’s preparations for the crucial 2014 World Cup qualifier against Zambia have been dealt a big blow after Adam Kwarasey was withdrawn from the squad today.

The Norwey-based goalkeeper suffered a groin injury while playing for his club over the weekend.

An MRI scan examination by the Black Stars medical team on Tuesday morning revealed the 24-year-old will not be available on Friday.

"We conducted some tests on Adam's groin this morning but unfortunately it did not look good. He will not be able to play on Friday," Dr Baba Adam, the Black Stars medical officer told

Meanwhile, Medeama's Foli Adade who is the first-choice with the local Black Stars has been called up as replacement for Kwarasey.

The other goalkeepers in camp are Fatau Dauda and Brimah Razak.
