Stephan Ambrosius, who is on coach Otto Addo’s preliminary list, has announced in a social media post Monday that he will not be available to play for Ghana at the Qatar World Cup due to an injury he suffered over the weekend.

The centre-back expressed his disappointment but wished the Black Stars luck in the tournament.

“Very frustrating. Unfortunately, I’ll be missing the next games. Thank you so much for all the well wishes! I wish my club and the national team all the best on their upcoming tasks.”

Ambrosius is yet to make his Ghana debut after choosing to represent the nation over Germany at the international level earlier this year.

Due to his injury, the provisional squad have been reduced to 54 which includes seven central defenders, out of which the coach will make his final selection for the 26-man squad who will represent Ghana at the World Cup in Qatar.

Stephan Ambrosius is born in Germany to Ghanaian parents and played for Germany at the youth level before switching to Ghana.

The 23-year-old was hoping to be included in the final squad, which will face Portugal, South Korea, and Uruguay.
