Scotland based midfielder Thomas Agyapong has been ruled out of Ghana’s double header against Sierra Leone in the 2019 AFCON qualifier.
The winger picked up an injury over the weekend while featuring for his club-side Hibernian and is set for a spell on the sidelines.
“Yes unfortunately Thomas Agyapong had an injury in their weekend game, he did a scan and thought he could join the team but has been given three weeks off so for that reason he can’t be part of the team so there is no intention of replacing him” Coach Names Akwesi Appiah
“Thomas Agyapong injury -It’s not going affect our plan or the team but we wish should be part of the team but you can force him to play but the reason why we call 23 players is if someone got injury and has been rule out they can get his replacement,” he added.
Ghana will host Sierra Leone at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on October 11 before travelling to Free Town for the second leg four days later.
The four-time African Champions are looking to bounce back from the 1-0 shock defeat to Kenya in Nairobi a fortnight ago.
