Ghana winger Christian Atsu has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations due to a hamstring injury.

The Newcastle ace picked up the injury during Saturday’s goalless draw with defending champions Cameroon.

The 27-year old lasted only 15 minutes before he was replaced by Samuel Owusu.

A medical report released on Monday by the team confirmed a long layoff.

Atsu is set to depart Ghana camp in Egypt for England to begin his rehabilitation process.

Ghana will face Guinea-Bissau in a decisive Group F clash today at the Suez Sports Stadium. Kick off at 4pm.

The four-time winners will need to beat the Wild Dogs to progress to the last 16 of the competition.
