Acheampong ruled out of Afcon qualifier against Kenya

The midfielder has left the Black Stars' camp to Europe after suffering an eye problem during training

Ghana midfielder Frank Acheampong has been officially ruled out of the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Kenya on Saturday due to eye injury.

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.
