Baba Rahman AFCON over after injury

Baba Rahman of Chelsea and Ghana

Left- back  Baba Rahman’s tournament is over after he suffered an injury in Ghana’s 1-0 win over the Cranes Uganda last Tuesday in Gabon.

The on loan Chelsea player twisted his knee and left the field on a stretcher during the first half of the Group D clash between their African counterparts.

German side Schalke 04 confirmed that the player had suffered a bruised meniscus and has asked him to return to Germany for further treatment. 

Anderlecht forward Frank Acheampong is expected to replace him against Mali in Ghana’s next AFCON game on Saturday.

Baba Rahman absence will be a big blow to the four time Afcon winners after registering himself as one the important players in the team.
