There is a refreshing wind blowing in the camp of the Black Stars and that has heightened optimism among the playing body and the technical team alike.
It has now emerged from the quarters of the team’s doctor that team captain John ‘The Rock’ Mensah will miss just a game- the Ghana-Mali on Saturday- as a result of the red card offence he committed in Ghana’s opening game against Botswana last Tuesday.
The Black Stars captain, according to team Doctor Percy Annan, suffered a slight injury-muscle contusion, and not muscle tear as was widely speculated.
And indications are that the defender is responding to treatment-making him a possible first team player when Ghana take on Guinea in their last group game on Wednesday.
“John is doing well, by way of recovery. It is not muscle tear as people speculated, rather it is a muscle contusion, a condition which rules him out for a short period,” Doctor Annan told this writer in an interview.
“The good news is he will be available for the Guinea game fully fit on Wednesday,” the doctor added.
Mensah suffered the muscle contusion injury in his attempt to slide a Botswana forward which led to his exit in the 66th minute in their Group ‘D’ opener.
