The Shanghai SIPG striker has been struggling with a thigh problem in recent weeks and the problem appeared to rear its ugly head again in training on Wednesday, however tests showed he had suffered a sprain on his hamstring.
Local media is now reporting that Gyan is out of Thursday’s contest against Mozambique in Accra, while his involvement for the return Group H contest on Sunday is also in jeopardy.

Ghana, though, will hope to have enough in their squad to cope with Gyan’s absence and make it three wins from three in Group H with Avram Grant’s men – finalists in the 2015 AFCON – having beaten Mauritius and Rwanda thus far.
