Ghana will be without striker Jordan Ayew and defender Jonathan Mensah for Tuesday friendly international against South Africa in Durban due to injuries.

A Ghana FA publication read: “Some players including Jonathan Mensah, Jordan Ayew and Afriyie Acquah could not travel with the team due to injuries.”

Ayew played and lasted the entire duration in Friday’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Uganda in Tamale.

But the Aston Villa player seems to have suffered a knock.

Mensah picked an injury before the match against Uganda and was dropped from the starting line-up against the Cranes.

Torino midfielder Afriyie Acquah was the first to withdraw from the squad after hobbling off during the Uganda match.
