Ghana’s Black Stars captain Andre Ayew is out of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Luanda against Angola after sustaining a knee injury on Thursday.
The AFC Bournemouth man slipped on his way to the dressing room and hurt his knee as findings of the MRI scan have meant that he has to return to his club for further treatment.
The 33 year-old will not travel with the squad to Luanda for the return leg which takes place on Monday.
Other players who didn’t make the trip include Alexander Djiku, Mohammed Salisu and Denis Odoi. The trio were left out of the travelling party due to injuries. The Ghana Football Association wishes them a speedy recovery.
The Black Stars will depart Accra on Saturday afternoon for Luanda ahead of the match on Monday, March 27, 2023.
