Mubarak Wakaso is out of Ghana’s next Nations Cup qualifier against Mozambique in Maputo after picking up an injury in Thursday’s duel.

The Las Palmas player was substituted in the 3-1 win in a game that Avram Grant said his club thought he could not play in. Now the knock he picked up has ruled him out of the game completely.

It means the Black Stars will be without captain Asamoah Gyan, his deputy Dede Ayew and Wakaso who has been one of Ghana’s best players.

Grant said: “The report from Wakaso’s team was that he could not play in the first game but he got ready for it. Now he has an injury but we don’t want to risk them because the medical department said they could not. The players wanted to give everything.”

Ghana will also leave it late before deciding on Frank Acheampong, John Boye and Christian Atsu can play a part in the game after they picked up various knocks on Thursday.
