Ghana and Chelsea star Michael Essien picked up a knee injury that will keep him out of the African Cup of Nations.
The dude just happens to be one of my favorites in the world, so I am so very glad it's looking like he'll be OK for the World Cup.
I am not liking the trend of stars getting scares before the big event. If we lose some star power by June, everyone suffers.
This could be a big summer to capture the hearts of the non-believers.
