Grant Worry over Gyan’s absence for AFCON qualifier

Ghana Black Stars Head coach  Avram Grant is waiting  to see if Black Stars captain Asamoah Gyan will be available for the friendly match against Guinea in Paris and the AFCON qualifier against Mauritius.

The Ghana skipper is feared to have suffered a bad injury as he was substituted just after 10 minutes whilst in action for Shanghai SIPG in the Chinese Super League on Saturday afternoon.

Details of the injury is yet to emerge as SIPG medical team is diagnosing the extent of damage done to the 30-year-old striker.

SIPG manager Sven Goran Eriksson was forced to apply an alteration to his side early in the game as the striker could not continue the game at the Workers Stadium against Beijing Guoan.

Grant is expected to name his squad for the friendly against Guinea in the coming days but will only do so with the full details of the fitness of his skipper.

The team that will be named for the friendly will proceed to play in the AFCON qualifier against Mauritius on the 6th of June.
