Ghana goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey has been ruled out of 2017 Africa Cup of Nations due to injury, according to reports in the Ghanaian media.

The Norway-based goalie, who was named in the team's provisional squad, has been replaced by Enyimba FC goalkeeper Fatau Dauda.

Under the helms of coach Avram Grant, the team are holding a final preparation camp in Dubai for the Africa tournament which will take place in Gabon between 14 January and 5 February.

Razak Brimah and Richard Ofori are the other two goalkeepers in the camp.

The winners of four AFCON titles (1963, 1965, 1978, and 1982), Ghana are in Group B of the 2017 competition with Egypt, Mali and Uganda.
