In Ghana’s second 2026 World Cup qualifier against the Comoros, coach Chris Hughton faces the challenge of navigating the match without two key players who have been sidelined due to injuries.
Mohammed Kudus and Daniel Amartey are notable absentees from the crucial Group I game scheduled for Tuesday, November 21, 2023.
Defender Daniel Amartey, having undergone a late fitness test, was deemed unfit for the match, as revealed in a statement released by the Ghana Football Association on Monday morning.
Amartey sustained an injury just over an hour into the game against Madagascar at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Friday and was subsequently replaced by Kasim Adams.
Adding to the setback, reports indicate that Mohammed Kudus is also set to miss the game after suffering an injury during the Black Stars’ training session on Monday leading up to the match.
The absence of the West Ham United midfielder poses a significant loss for the team, particularly as they aim to secure consecutive wins in the qualifiers.
Despite these setbacks, the team is gearing up for the challenge, with the game scheduled to kick off at 4p.m. at the Stade de Moroni.
