''Musah sustained an injury during Black Stars training last Wednesday. After an initial medical examination by the team’s medical team, Nuhu has been permitted to return to his club for further assessment and will be accompanied by team Psychologist, Dr Patrick Ofori.

With the current twist of event, coach Kwasi Appiah has only 28 players in camp prior to the naming of final 23 players who will represent the nation at the continental campaign.
