Wakaso, Annan And Yiadom Hand Ghana Injury Boost Ahead of Quarter Finals

Ghana's preparations for their quarter-final clash against Cape Verde was handed a massive boost with the return of three players to training. Anthony Annan, Mubarak Wakaso and Richmond Boakye-Yiadom were involved in light training at the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University on Tuesday. The trio jogged and were involved in kick-abouts in a session supervised by assistant coach Maxwell Kondau. Youngster Boakye has not played a single match since twisting his ankle during the team's pre-tournament camping in Abu Dhabi. The 19-year-old striker will be assessed further ahead of Saturday's last eight encounter. Annan aggravated an ankle injury when he came on as a substitute in the 2-2 draw with DR Congo in Ghana's opener. Wakaso, suspended for the final Group match against Niger, sustained a knee injury in the match against Mali. The news will be a big relief for the technical team who will require a healthy squad to break down the resolute Cape Verde side.
