Ghana and Al Ahli striker Asamoah Gyan is set to miss the crucial 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Egypt due to injury.

The Black Stars captain picked up an injury during his club’s final training session on Tuesday ahead of the league encounter against Hatta.

Gyan was excluded from the team that beat Hatta 6-0 today due to injury, which forced the player to reveal that he’s running out of time to make the Black Stars’ crucial encounter against Egypt.

“It will be very hard to participate in Ghana’s encounter against the Pharaohs on the 13th of November in the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers,” Gyan was quoted by UAE portal 24.

“I will undergo tests tomorrow under the supervision of the club’s medical team to find out the extent of my injury and the duration of my time out,” the 30-year-old concluded.

The Black Stars need to beat the Pharaohs of Egypt on November 13, to ease their chances of securing a fourth successive world Cup appearance.
