Bernard Mensah to miss Ghana's final AFCON qualifier against Kenya

Bernard Mensah is set to miss Ghana’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Kenya after suffering an injury on Saturday.

Mensah has been ruled out for a month after sustaining a collarbone injury whilst playing for Kayserispor in the Turkish SupaLig.

The on-loan Atletico Madrid midfielder picked the injury in the 33rd minute of the match against Besiktas at the Kadir Has Stadium.

Scan result suggested that the 24-year-old will be sidelined for 4-5 weeks - which has automatically ruled him out of the Black Stars top of the table in Group F clash against the Harambee Stars of Kenya.

The match is scheduled to come off on Saturday, March 22, at a yet-to-be-named-venue.

Both teams have already qualified for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations which will be held in Egypt in June.
