Ghana is currently sweating over winger Kamaldeen Sulemana's injury ahead of playoffs against Nigeria next month.

The 20-year-old missed Stade Rennes’s match against Troyes due to a back pain.

Rennes coach commented about the Black Stars winger's injury in a press conference.

“Sulemana has isthmic lysis, a small crack in a vertebra. It's annoying. We don't really know, but it could take some time. Due to shock? No, it's a bit like a stress fracture. explains Bruno Genesio.

Sulemana has been impressive since joining the club last summer from FC Nordjaelland.

The winger's injury at Rennes comes as a big blow for Ghana in their preparation to take on Nigeria for a place at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

The Right to Dream Academy graduate is yet to start a game for his outfit since December, 12 2021. The last game he started was against Lille.

He has also not scored since October 17, 2021 against Metz.
