Adam Kwarasey won’t require surgery

Ghana goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey won’t require surgery on the back injury which ruled him out of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, according to GHANASoccernet.

The Norwegian-based goalkeeper was named in the Black Stars’ 26-man preliminary squad just under a week ago, but when coach Avram Grant trimmed the group to a final selection of 23, Kwarasey’s name had been removed due to a back injury.

In his stead, Fatau Dauda – who has been a squad member at three previous AFCONs – was named in the 23-man list.

Media reports in Ghana claimed that the 29-year-old Rosenborg player would require surgery on his injury.

However, GHANASoccernet reports that this is not the case and the goalkeeper is expected to be fit to resume playing after a few weeks’ rest.

Ghana will open their Group D campaign at the 2017 AFCON with a match against Uganda in Port-Gentil on January 17.
