Christian Atsu ruled out of Ghana clash

Newcastle star Christian Atsu has pulled out of Ghana's World Cup qualifier against Uganda with a calf problem.

The Magpies winger was due to captain the Black Stars side for the match in Kampala on Saturday.

The 25-year-old is said to have picked up the injury during Newcastle United's Premier League draw with Liverpool over the weekend.

It is not known if the injury is serious enough to keep him out of action beyond the international break.

Atsu's absence means Ghana are now without five key players including regular skipper Asamoah Gyan, Thomas Agyepong, Jonathan Mensah and Harrison Afful.
