The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has granted Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey permission to travel back to London for further assessment after picking up a suspected knee injury last Friday minutes before the Black Stars international friendly against Brazil.
The 29-year-old was set to start for the Black Stars but just a few minutes before kick-off of Ghana's 3-0 loss to the South Americans but was forced to withdraw after picking up a knock.
Thomas Partey also returning to London. According to a source at the Black Stars camp, he needs a scan on his knee which flaired up during pre-kickoff warm up. Nothing serious suspected but he is not likely to feature in the Nicaragua game. https://t.co/Jl4G0qvqpU— Gabby Otchere-Darko (@GabbyDarko) September 24, 2022
