2021 AFCON: Ghana midfielder Baba Iddrisu to miss Comoros tie due to hamstring injury
Baba Iddrisu will miss Ghana’s final Group C game against Comoros at the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) on Tuesday, the Ghana Football Association (GFA) has confirmed.
The 25-year-old must sit out of the must-win game having picked up a hamstring injury during Black Stars’ 1-1 draw against Gabon last Friday.
Iddrisu limped out in the 65th minute of the encounter in Yaounde.
“The scan results revealed Oedema in his hamstring and so at the moment he can’t play against Comoros on Tuesday,” Doctor Adam Baba told ghanafa.org after returning from the Garoua Military hospital on Monday.
He made his Ghana debut on Sunday, November 13, 2019 in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Africa at the Cape Coast stadium.
Black Stars have yet to record a victory at the on-going AFCON in Cameroon but stand a chance of going through to the round of 16 if they beat Comoros on Tuesday.
