Captain of Ghana Black Stars, Asamoah Gyan fears he may be ruled out of the Africa Cup of Nations after suffering an injury in Wednesday’s 1-0 defeat by Egypt.
Gyan was substituted in the first half and is in danger of missing Sunday’s quarterfinal against DR Congo. “I’m in pain right now. I don’t know the extent of the injury, we have to go for an MRI scan,” he told BBC Sport.
“I’m desperate to come back and I’ll try as much as possible, but if I cannot it’s part of the game.” The 31-year-old striker was making his 99th international appearance in the Group D match against Egypt and was looking to score his 50th goal for his country.
