Ghana and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Richard Ofori says his side will miss Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey ahead of their upcoming 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sudan on Thursday.
Partey sustained a thigh injury in a Premier League match against Aston Villa last Sunday and is expected to be out of action for some time.
Ghana host Sudan at the Cape Coast stadium today with the reverse fixture scheduled for November 17.
“He is one of the best players in the team and one of the best players in the world,” he said.
“Definitely, we will miss him. But we wish him a speedy recovery so he can join the team in upcoming games.
“…the most important thing is anyone who wears the Ghana jersey is capable of delivering for the country.
So we need t just pray for anyone that they’ll give the opportunity to and make sure we make the country proud,” he concluded.
Ghana top Group C with six points after beating South Africa and Sao Tome in their first two opening games.
