Goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey has been withdrawn from the Black Stars to face Zambia after suffering a groin injury when playing for the Norwegian club over the weekend.
The Stromsgodset shot-stopper did not participate in the team’s training session on Tuesday after arriving on Monday night for the game.
The Ghana FA has confirmed that Kwarasey went the hospital with the team doctor to conduct tests on his groin.
He presented himself to the Black Stars medical team on Tuesday morning to be examined and an MRI scan showed that he will not be available for Friday’s game.
“We conducted some tests on Adam’s groin this morning but unfortunately it did not look good. He will not be able to play on Friday,” Dr Baba Adam, the Black Stars medical officer told Ghanafa.org.
Kwarasey looked primed to reclaim his first choice spot from Fatau Dauda for Friday’s deciding World Cup qualifier against Zambia before suffering his latest setback.
The situation now leaves Fatau Dauda and Razak Braimah as the only two goalkeepers in contention for a starting place in Friday’s crucial match.The Ghana FA are however yet to confirm this information.
