Black Stars midfielder Baba Iddrisu suffers fresh injury

Spain-based Ghanaian midfielder Baba Iddrisu Mohammed suffered a horrific head injury in the twilight of Real Mallorca's La Liga game against Atletico Madrid on Saturday afternoon.

The 26-year-old midfield linchpin played a crucial role for Mallorca as they defended gallantly to hold onto their solitary strike to clinch a crucial one-nil win over the Rojiblancos.

Baba would have completed the game unscathed but in the dying embers of the game, the Ghana international's face met a ferocious shot in the box as Atletico aimed an equalizer.
