However, it is yet to be known the length of his injury and when he will be returning to the pitch.

His injury will be a huge worry for Olympics who have been heavily reliant on their captain.

Meanwhile, the rest of the players in the Black Stars camp have no injury concerns.

Ghana plays Morocco tonight in Rabat before returning home for a second friendly against Ivory Coast on June 12, 2021.

Still on sports, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Ghana's Black Meteors suffered another humiliating defeat at the hands of Japan on Tuesday morning.

The U23 team was beaten 4-0 by their Japanese counterparts, making it 10-0 on aggregate after two legs.
