Ghanaian defender Daniel Amartey will miss the upcoming 2026 World Cup qualifying game against Comoros on Tuesday due to injury.
The former Leicester City player sustained the injury during Ghana’s 1-0 victory over Madagascar last Friday at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in the opening match of the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.
Amartey, who now plays for Besiktas, had to leave the field due to the injury and was subsequently replaced by Kassim Nuhu. Although he traveled with the team to Moroni for the second Group I game, a subsequent test revealed that he won’t be joining the team in Comoros.
Despite an MRI scan not indicating any obvious injury, the medical team has decided to keep Amartey out of the Ghana-Comoros game. Ghana is set to face Comoros on Tuesday in Moroni for their second match in the 2026 World Cup qualifying campaign.
