Black Stars deputy captain Thomas Partey will not play in Ghana's 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Madagascar and the Central African Republic.

Due to an injury, the Arsenal midfielder has been left out of the Black Stars squad for the games.

He was out of action for Arsenal's final eight league games of the season due to injury, and he has not recovered in time to play for the Black Stars.

Although his presence would have been appreciated, his absence should have no impact on the team's ability to defeat lower-ranked opponents.

Partey was instrumental in Ghana's qualification for the 2022 World Cup in March by scoring the crucial away goal against Nigeria in Abuja.

He finished the season with two goals and one assist in 26 games for Arsenal in all competitions.

Black Stars face Madagascar in their first match of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers on June 1 at the Cape Coast Sports Stadium.

For the second match against the Central African Republic, Ghana will travel to Angola.

They will then compete in a four-nation tournament against Japan, Chile, and Tunisia as part of their preparations for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in November.
