Orland Pirates goalkeeper Richard Ofori is out of Ghana’s squad to face South Africa after failing to recover in time for the game.
The 27 year old was stretchered off after pulling a muscle in the 15th minute of their CAF Confederation Cup game against E S Setif at the Accra Sports Stadium.
It was later revealed the injury was not serious and he could be back in time for Ghana’s double header.
But FMIG can confirm the player has been ruled out of the clash after failing to recover in time for the game on Thursday.
This will mean that Ghana national team head coach CK Akonnor will rely heavily on Razak Abalora, Eric Ofori Antwi and young Danlad Ibrahim.
Ghana needs at least three points from the two games to qualify for the next edition of the AFCON.
The Black Stars play away to South Africa on March 25,2021 and against Sao Tome on March 28.
