Wideman Edmund Ako-Mensah, left-back Gideon Acquah and Abdul Razak Yusif have all been knocked back by a bout of malaria.

“We have been inundated with several calls and messages from numerous well-wishers inquiring about the state of health of team Ghana.

“A total of six players and three technical team members were diagnosed with malaria just after our game with Cameroun.

“They were put on medication and are all responding very well to treatment.

“The medical team is working round the clock to ensure they are all fit before our semifinal game with Niger.
