He explained that Hearts of Oak must honour the match since they still have more than 11 players who are fit.

“It’s very unfortunate the situation of Hearts of Oak where a lot of the players are unwell but the GFA can’t postpone a game because players are sick. This won’t happen anywhere in professional football. They have to raise a team to play” Former Hearts striker Prince Tagoe on Angel TV.

About 15 players have been hospitalized at different hospitals in Accra after the camp of Accra Hearts of Oak was hit with sickness.
