Majeed Waris, Daniel Opare Out For Three Weeks
Ghana striker Majeed Waris is to sit out for the next 21 days due to injury.
Waris who recently joined new club Lorient in the French league had a forgettable debut in which he played full game in his side’s 1-1 stalemate with Bastia last Sunday.
He suffered a fracture to his left hand in the match and has been ruled out for at least three weeks.
The injury puts the availability of the 23-year-old in doubt for national team duties with the Black Stars against Congo (friendly) and Rwanda in the Afcon 2017 qualifiers on September 1 and 5 respectively.
Like Waris, new Augsburg defender Daniel Opare has also been ruled out for three weeks after colliding with a teammate in training on Monday evening.
Reports suggest the versatile full-back’s setback is not a serious one but the Bundesliga side are not ready to take chances with his fitness and will allow Opare time out to fully recover.
