Addo set for injury return

16 years ago

Ghana international, Eric Addo expects to make a full recovery from an ankle injury in four weeks time.

The injury ruled Addo out of Ghana’s last World Cup qualifier against Gabon last Sunday after he picked up a knock to the ankle in the reverse fixture in Libreville two weeks ago.

Addo, could however miss the early part of his club, PSV Eindhoven's pre-season training as they prepare to defend the Dutch Eredivise title.

Despite been forced off by the injury in the last game for Ghana, Addo insists he has enjoyed every bit of the month of June when the Black Stars were engaged in four games in a bid to reach South Africa 2010.

“At times it was tough but there is no bigger honour than to play for your nation so we have handled it well,” he has told

“It is important from a player’s perspective now that we have started well. When the qualifiers resume it will take a lot of focus and discipline to stay where we are.”
