Defender Cynthia Adobea has been ruled out of Ghana's final Africa Women Cup of Nations Group game against Mali on Saturday.

She will undergo an MRI scan today to assess the extent of injury picked up in the  1-1 draw with Nigeria on Wednesday.

The outcome of the result determine if she can play again should the Black Queens advance in the tournament.

''There is a discomfort in the right hip, so it may be an overstretched muscle,'' Dr Mabel Aboah said.

"We,however, do not want to take any risk so we are going in for the scan. Once we know exactly what it is, we will give the right treatment.

"For now, I can confirm that she will not play in the game against Mali on Saturday as she needs to rest. The outcome of the MRI will determine her fate in the rest of the competition.''
