Medeama will be without three influential players ahead of Sundayâ€™s game against Tema Youth at home.
Deputy captain Otuo Acheampong, Bismark Asiedu and Theophilus Anobah are part of the local Black Stars squad that are preparing for an international tournament in Brazil.
The team has been preparing at the Obuasi Len Clay stadium ahead of the tournament, meaning they will not be available to play the final game that ends the first round at the Tarkwa and Aboso Park.
â€œItâ€™s unfortunate to leave the team at this time when weâ€™re needed most,â€ Acheampong told medeamasc.com
â€œThough weâ€™re not there physically, our prayers are with them. Weâ€™re confident weâ€™ll end the first round on top.â€
