Columbus Crew right-back Harrison Afful has been excluded from coach Kwesi Appiah's 29- man provisional squad owing to injury for the forthcoming Nations Cup in Egypt.
The 33- year old has been on the sidelines after picking up an injury in Columbus Crew's defeat to Atlanta United in the MLS in April 2019.
The former Asante Kotoko defender sustained a fractured jaw when he collided with compatriot Jonathan Mensah and was taken off the field 27th minute into the game.
Affu has been ruled out for four to six weeks due to the injury.
He is still on the road to recovery from his injury and head coach of the Ghana team Kwesi Appiah has excluded him from his list as he hopes to count on fit players for the competition.
He was part of the Ghana squads for 2008, 2010, 2013, and 2015 AFCONs.
In 2018, he returned to the Black Stars for the first time and made two appearances in 2019 AFCON qualifier as Ghana finalized a spot at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
