Ghana coach Charles Akonnor has left out Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey from his Black Stars squad for the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying double-header against South Africa and Ethiopia.

The Ghanaian international limped off with a right ankle injury during the first half of Arsenal’s 2-0 pre-season friendly defeat by Chelsea on August 1 following a robust challenge by Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

Partey had already been ruled out of the 2021/22 Premier League season opener away to newly-promoted London rivals Brentford on Friday evening with ligament damage.

Because of the situation with his injury Akonnor has been forced to leave him out of his squad for the games.

The influential Partey has endured bad luck with injury since joining Arsenal from Atletico Madrid in a high-profile £45million deal on transfer deadline day in October 2020, featuring in only 24 Premier League matches during his maiden campaign in English football.
