He is said to have suffered an acute eye problem and was under treatment since joining the Black Stars camp in Addis Ababa on Tuesday.

Acheampong is to travel to Europe for emergency eye treatment after complaining about the situation was getting worse.

"I am aware he has an eye problem that was being managed but his condition did not improve and he had to fly to Europe to see his eye specialist,” Dr Adomako, Black Stars team doctor said.

Acheampong has been one of Ghana's top performers abroad this season after banging in 13 goals in the Chinese Super League.

The Black Stars will be targeting a second consecutive win in Group F after an opening 5-0 win over Ethiopia last year in Kumasi.

On the other hand, the Harambee Stars suffered a 2-1 defeat at Sierra Leone and they will be looking for their first win when they meet Ghana.
