Ghana have been dealt a hammer blow ahead of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Mozambique after captain Asamoah Gyan was ruled out with a thigh injury.
Gyan’s recent injury nightmare came haunting again after he pulled out of Wednesday training session with a thigh problem, GHANAsoccernet.com revealed.
He had his thigh wrapped with packed ice as the technical staff looked worried with the prospect of losing his services very high.
Gyan’s elder brother Baffour, an ex-Ghana international striker, came from the stands to talk to him before he was taken away from the pitch by the medical staff.
It looks like a recurring injury which saw him Shanghai SIPG’s Asian Champions League win over Suwon Bluewings early this month.
But it has now been confirmed the former Sunderland hitman will not fully recover in time, with less than 24 hours before the showdown against the Mambas at the Accra sports stadium.
