Ghana’s Black Stars look set to be without Thomas Partey for the upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia and South Africa.

The combative midfielder is yet to feature for his struggling club side, Arsenal this season after sustaining an injury during the preseason.

However, Black Stars Head Coach, C.K Akonnor, believes Ghana has enough quality in the squad to perform even without their talismanic midfielder.

“We’ve been in touch with Partey, and his injury doesn’t look too good for us,” Akonnor said.

”However we have guys who can step into his position and do well.”

Ghana plays Ethiopia on September 3, at the Cape Coast stadium, before flying out to Johannesburg to play South Africa on September 7.
