AFCON 2017: Ghana Want To Play For Rahman

Ghana will be playing for injured left back Baba Rahman when they take on Mali in their second Group D tie on Saturday at Stade de Port Gentil.

Rahman left camp on Friday to Schalke in Germany for further treatment after he was diagnosed as having suffered a rupture of the meniscus and a particular tear of the anterior cruciate ligament with fluid collection in the knee.

“We want to make sure that we play and make him happy. We wish him the very best in his recovery,” Grant told supersport.com in an exclusive interview.

Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan shared the same spirit as Grant and emphasized that the team will do everything to get a good result against Alain Giresse’s men.

“We are going to fight for this tournament to make him proud and even if he is not here, he will be proud of us,” mentioned Gyan.

Ghana won their Group D opener against Uganda 1-0 via an Andre Ayew penalty in the 30th minute after Isaac Isinde brought down Gyan in the penalty box.

The Black Stars enjoyed a dominant first half but the Cranes put on a spirited show in the second period even though it did not amount to much as the experienced Ghana side picked maximum points.

If Grant’s men register a win against Mali, they will join Senegal in the quarterfinals however any other result will mean that they will have to wait for their game against Egypt on January 25 to know their fate.
