Ghana’s all-time leading scorer, Asamoah Gyan limped off in the Black Stars’ 0-1 loss to Egypt in their Africa Cup of Nation Group D clash and is set to undergo an MRI Scan to determine the extent of the injury.
The injury which seemed to be a recurrence of a hamstring problem is expected to heal within time so he is available for Ghana’s quarter-final clash against DR Congo on Sunday.
However, the MRI scan will show clearly whether Gyan will be able to feature on Sunday or not.
Ghana lost the attacker to a groin injury five minutes before half-time and tests will be done to determine whether he will play any further part in the competition.
Gyan said: “I felt a stretch in my adductor, so I don’t know the extent of the injury.
“I’m in pain right now. Tomorrow (Thursday) I will see the doctor. We will go for the MRI and then we can decide the extent of the injury.”
Gyan was making his 99th international appearance and was looking to score his 50th goal for his country and the Black Stars.
But he went down with a groin injury towards the end of the first half and eventually came off.
Jordan Ayew replaced him as Ghana lost the Group D game in Port-Gentil 1-0.
The Black Stars, runners-up in 2015, will face DR Congo in the quarterfinals in Oyem on Sunday.
