Reading Left-back Abdul Baba Rahman has been ruled of Ghana’s crucial World Cup Playoff against Nigeria.
The Black Stars host the Super Green Eagles in the first leg on March 25, 2022, at the Cape Coast Stadium before going to Abuja for the second leg on March 29, 2022.
Baba Rahman who and started all three games of the Black Stars AFCON 2021 campaign has been ruled out for a minimum of two weeks.
The Reading defender has been out of action since mid-February after picking up a knee injury against Preston North End in the Championship.
Reading boss Paul Ince has confirmed the 27-year-old left-back will continue to be sidelined for the next two to three weeks making him unavailable for the World Cup play-off.
“Rahman is two or three weeks away. Halilovic is maybe another week or so away. It’s tough because these players have been out a while and we need to get them back up to scratch,” Ince said in a press conference ahead of this weekend’s match against Nottingham Forest.
Black Stars Coach Otto Addo is expected to name his squad for this month’s World Cup play-offs soon as the team will commence preparations for the crucial encounter.
