Ghana's fullback Kwadwo Asamoah will not be available for the Black Stars' Nations Cup qualifier clash against Ethiopia due to injury, the Ghanaian football Association announced on Monday.

The Inter Milan defender sustained a knee injury during his side's 4-1 defeat to Atalanta in a serie A game on Sunday.

''According to officials of Inter Milan, Asamoah's condition has been intermittent and there is a need to seek urgent medical attention," read a statement on the Ghana's FA official website on Sunday.

''Coach Kwasi Appiah will not alter his squad. The Black Stars thus travels to Kenya for camping with a 19-man squad."

''The team begins camping in Kenya on 12 November 2018. The Normalisation Committee wishes Kwadwo Asamoah a speedy recovery.''

Asamoah made a return to international football in September after a four-year self-imposed exile and featured in the 1-0 defeat to the Harambee Stars in the 2019 AFCON qualifier.

Ghana are third on Group F with three points, four points behind leaders Kenya, who played one match more.
