Massive 2014 World Cup boost for Ghana as injured John Boye returns to training

Ghana defender John Boye has handed the Black Stars a massive 2014 World Cup boost by returning to training with the Rennes squad after a two-month injury-induced absence, GHANAsoccernet.com can exclusively reveal.
The centre-back trained with the entire squad of the French top-flight club on Monday night, the first time he has joined team since suffering the injury in October, Ghana’s leading football news outfit can reveal.
The return to training with the entire Rennes first team squad shows that the talented centre-back will return to full time action in the coming days.
The news is a massive boost for coach Kwesi Appiah who was left without three of his key central defenders in the final 2014 World Cup qualifiers against Egypt.
Boye withdrew from the squad that played Egypt in the decisive 2014 World Cup playoff clash in October and November because of the thigh injury.
The injury required surgery which kept him out of action for about eight weeks.
This left coach Appiah without his first and second choice central defensive pair for the two-legged matches against Egypt in October and November.
He was the third Ghana central defender to be ruled out of the match against Egypt following the likes of Isaac Vorsah and Jonathan Mensah.
With Mensah now playing fully with French side Evian, Vorsah remains the sticking point with just about six months to the World Cup in Brazil.

    The coach of the Caf Champions League finalists has stated that he is under no pressure to field the Ghanaian No. 1 shot-stopper, despite his international exploits

    Orlando Pirates manager Roger De Sa has explained his reasons for keeping Senzo Meyiwa between the sticks, and not giving Ghana international goalkeeper Fatau Dauda a run.

    “Dauda is our third-choice keeper,” De Sa told Sports24. “Brighton Mhlongo is our second choice and the other thing is Dauda is always away with his country.”

    “He needs to be patient too and hopefully his time will come just like Senzo,” De Sa added.

    The former Ashantigold custodian is under pressure in his native Ghana for his bench warming role in South Africa. Football watchers have warned that could cost him his Black Stars spot ahead of the 2014 World Cup.

    Can somebody update us on the recovery of Isaac Vorsah,when is he coming back?

    Waaaa see? Third choice keeper for no club other than Orlando pirate and yet he’s the nr.1 for a country dreaming to qualify ahead of u.s, , Germany and Portugal whose has top class keepers playing in the best league in world.if a third choice keeper gonna be in post for ghana in Brazil, then we stop dreaming of going pass the group.

    • Papadinho says:

      aahhw bro say that again ooh. what a shame!!! If dauda is gonna keep for at the WC2014 then we should forget about the next round. hhmm I’m just wondering how it will be with Ronaldo, Ozil and other players playing against us. Kwarasey is the man for this posisiton. I think Dauda gives 50$ of his salary to AA that’s why he’s always getting field in. Wahaat a shaammeeeee!!! A nation like Ghana using a third choice keeper at the Pirates!!!! say what!!!!!!!!!!!!
