The Ghana U-20 team has been dealt a huge blow following the injury of striker Prince Adu Kwabena ahead of the 2021 CAF U-20 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.
The Bechem United teenager missed the WAFU Zone B championship in December 2020, due to an injury.
Ahead of the U-20 AFCON, the 19-year-old has suffered a knee ligament injury while playing for his club.
According to the Ghana Football Association (GFA), the Bechem United forward has as a result been ruled out of the 2021 Total U-20 Africa Cup of Nations tournament.
Prince Adu Kwabena was part of the 30-man provisional squad for the tournament and was expected to give coach Karim Zito a massive squad boost.
The Ghana U-20 team will at this year’s tournament chase a record fourth Africa U-20 title having been crowned champions in 1993, 1999, and 2009.
The tournament starts in Mauritania from Sunday, February 14, to Saturday, March 6, 2021.
