The 26-year-old suffered ‘an acute eye problem’ during the Black Stars final training session in Ethiopia, ahead of the team’s departure for Kenya.
"I am aware he has an acute eye problem which was being managed but his condition did not improve and he has to fly to Europe to see an eye specialist," Black Stars doctor Dr. Adomako told Fifa/Caf Liaison Team communication director Dan Kwaku Yeboah.
"It's an unfortunate incident since his situation is worsening every hour but we want the best for the player and his career.
"Therefore, it was necessary to grant him the opportunity to leave and cure his ailment while the remaining players face Kenya. We wish him all the best," he added.
