2019 AFCON: Injured Nuhu Musah flies back to Switzerland

Black Stars defender, Nuhu Adams, has been granted permission to fly to Switzerland to seek medical attention after suffering an injury during training at the Black Stars’ training camp in Dubai last Wednesday.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) website stated yesterday that,"Switzerland-based Ghanaian defender, Nuhu Musah, has been granted permission to travel back to Switzerland at the request of his club, St. Gallen.”

"Musah sustained an injury during Black Stars training last Wednesday.

After an initial medical examination by the team’s medical team, Nuhu has been permitted to return to his club for further assessment and will be accompanied by team psychologist, Dr Patrick Ofori.

The current situation leaves Coach Kwesi Appiah with 28 players to choose his final 23 players from to represent the nation at the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt.

Black Stars first choice goalkeeper, Richard Ofori, was the last player to join the team last Wednesday.

Ghana will open their AFCON campaign against Benin on June 25 at the Ismailia Stadium as they look to commence their Group F campaign on a bright note.

The 2019 AFCON is scheduled to commence on June 21 with the opening match between hosts Egypt and Zimbabwe
