Injured Ghana Defender Nicholas Opoku To Undergo Surgery At The End Of July
Ghana defender Nicholas Opoku will undergo surgery at the end of the month.
Opoku suffered a serious injury which rules him out of next year’s Africa Cup of Nations, as earlier reported by GHANASoccernet.com.
We can exclusively report that the 23-year-old will undergo surgery on July 27, 2021.
The center-back returned to Amiens SC for preseason after Ghana’s international friendlies against Morocco and Ivory Coast.
However, the player was diagnosed of a knee problem which will rule him out for several months.
Opoku picked up an injury whiles playing for Amiens in the Ligue II against Rodez last season, but returned to fitness before the end of the campaign.
He was then named in Ghana’s squad for the international friendlies against Morocco and Ivory Coast.
He picked a knock in the match against the Atlas Lions in Rabat and failed to recover for the Ivory Coast match.
This is a big blow for the French club and the Black Stars as the former Club Africain player has become a regular for the two teams.
He scored his first goal for the Black Stars of Ghana in the AFCON qualifier against Sao Tome in March.
