Defender Faisal Osman has been ruled out of next month's FIFA Under-17 World Cup finals due to injury.

The centre-back suffered an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury during training and cannot recover for the tournament which starts on 6 October.

Osman, who plays for Kumasi-based Young Vipers, was released from camp for treatment.

He was a key member of the squad which won silver at the CAF Under-17 Nations Cup in Gabon last May.

The Black Starlets have left for a training tour of Abu Dhabi, UAE ahead of the World Cup which starts on 6 October.
