Junior national team striker, Abeiku Quansah would undergo medical review of his fractured shoulder after being fouled during Ghana’s game against Ivory Coast in the African Junior Championship qualifier on Sunday.

The player would see doctors in Accra on Monday for an assessment of the injury.

The striker after rounding up the Ivorian goalkeeper, Serge Akoudjou in the box was tripped in the process and fell on shoulder resulting in the injury.

Quansah was immediately rushed to a hospital for treatment.

The referee however ignored the foul on the striker in the box and signaled for play on.

Ghana also had a Kevin Bossman goal disallowed in the first half.

The result of Quansah’s injury would determine his availability for the return leg in two weeks time.

Ivory Coast handled by former national goalkeeper, Alain Gouaméné beat Ghana 3-1 at home.

Ghana would need a 2-0 win in the second leg tie to edge out the Ivorians.

Seven out of the 14 countries in this second and final round will join host Togo in the finals of the African Junior Championship that takes place from 11 to 25 March 2007.
