Jeffrey Schlupp suffers injury, ruled out of AFCON qualifier against Rwanda

Published on: 25 August 2016

Leicester City player Jeffery Schlupp has been ruled out of next week's Africa Cup of Nations qualifier due to injury.

According to a report, Schlupp suffered an injury that will keep him out of action for four weeks.

England-based player, who can also play in several positions, was left out of the Foxes squad that played in the goalless draw against Arsenal over the weekend.

His exclusion came just a day after it was certain that Schlupp won't be leaving the Foxes, sparking fears that he has fallen out of favour at the club.

He has now been ruled out of action for four weeks which means he won't be available for Ghana when they take on Rwanda in Accra next week.

His absence is not expected to serve a big blow as the Black Stars have already booked their ticket to Gabon and sit atop Group H standings on 13 points, seven more than second place Rwanda.
