World Cup 2010 Update- Essien Out

Thursday, May 27, 2010

Injury-prone Chelsea midfielder Michael Essien has been ruled out of the World Cup. The Ghanaian scored 3 league goals and looked to be at his best before injuring his right knee in January at the African Cup of Nations.

Essien was not expected to be out for more than 3 months but complications during the operation led him to a much longer layoff. He is now rushing to be fit for the start of the new season.

This dashes any slight hopes Ghana had of winning the World Cup, as with Essien fit many had predicted them to be the first African team to do so. In my opinion, they won't even get through the group stages as I feel Germany and Australia will now beat them to it.
