AFCON Qualifiers: Injured Asamoah won’t be replaced - Kwasi Appiah

Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah says there won’t be any replacement for injured Kwadwo Asamoah in his squad to face Ethiopia in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier as the team gathers in Kenya

Asamoah can’t honour the invitation due to a recurrent knee injury. He suffered a swollen knee after their defeat away to Atalanta over the weekend where they lost by 1-4

According to Inter Milan c his condition has been intermittent and there is the need to seek urgent medical attention.

A statement signed by the spokesperson of the Normalization Committee reads: ”Coach Kwesi Appiah will not alter his squad. The Black Stars thus travels to Kenya for camping with a 19-man squad.

”The team begins camping in Kenya on November 12, 2018. The Normalization Committee wishes Kwadwo Asamoah a speedy recovery.”

Asamoah made a return to the national for the first time in four years in September for the qualifier against Kenya.

He featured in the 1-0 defeat to the Harambee Stars- a result which hurt the qualification campaign of the Black Stars.
