Atsu ruled out of AFCON with hamstring injury


Ghana international Christian Atsu has been ruled out of the remainder of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations due to a hamstring injury.

The 27-year-old sustained the sprain during the Black Stars’ goalless draw with Cameroon in Group F on Saturday, with a medical report released on Monday by the team confirming a long layoff.

The Newcastle United player will thus depart Ghana camp in Egypt for England to undergo treatments, according to officials.
