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.
