Injured Joseph Painstil Ruled Out Of Thursday’s AFCON Qualifier Clash 


The Technical team of the Black Stars has granted Joseph Painstil permission to return to his club side Genk in Belgium due to injury.

The winger sustained the injury in the last period of his League game against Anderlecht on Sunday and was later substituted – forcing him to withdraw from Thursday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Central African Republic. 

The 25-year-old who has recorded an assist in four games will return to his club immediately to commence rehabilitation.

That leaves Chris Hughton with 24 players to prepare for the match on Thursday.

They include:

Goalkeepers: Lawrence Ati Zigi, Abdul Manaf Nurudeen, Richard Ofori

Defenders: Alidu Seidu, Kingsley Schindler, Stephan Ambrosius, Joseph Aidoo, Alexander Djiku, Nicholas Opoku, Baba Abdul Rahman, Gideon Mensah

Midfielders: Abdul Samed-Salis, Baba Iddrisu, Edmund Addo, Andre Ayew, Elisha Owusu, Mohammed Kudus, Ransford Konigsdorffer

Forwards: Inaki Williams, Jordan Ayew, Antoine Semenyo, Ernest Nuamah, Osman Bukari, Jonathan Sowah
