Ghana is awaiting report on the extent of Asamoah Gyan’s injury after limping off the Ghana-Egypt Group D AFCON 2017 clash in Gabon.

The Ghana captain left the team’s previous venue, Port Gentil to Libreville where he is expected to undergo a series of tests to determine the extent of the injury.

The Ghana camp is hoping for a positive news as they prepare to face the enterprising DR Congo side that whipped Togo 3-0 in their final Group C clash.

The MRI scan will determine if the iconic skipper would be available for the Black Stars in Sunday’s clash with the Congolese in the quarter-finals of the tournament in Gabon.

Gyan sustained the groin injury in the feisty clash after chasing a long pass against an Egyptian marker.

Gyan said “I felt a stretch in my adductor, so I don’t know the extent of the injury.” Gyan told the media after the game.

Head coach Avram Grant at the post-match press conference was not confident his top marksman would be available for the next match.

“It’s not looking so good but Gyan is a very strong boy,” Grant said.

“We will need to wait and see. We will have a scan and then we will know better.”

However, MRI scan which is expected to take place in the Gabonese capital of Libreville, will determine if the iconic skipper would be match fit to lead the Black Stars against the impressive DR Congo in the quarter-finals on Sunday.

It was disappointing for Gyan to bow out of the game very early with injury as he was making his 99th international appearance and looking to score a historic 50th goal for his country and the Black Stars.
