Gyan hurt his groin while Andre Ayew picked up a thigh injury.
They were not part of the team’s training in Accra on Saturday and it has been confirmed that they will not play the return leg in Congo on Tuesday.
It is not clear if they will travel with their colleagues to Congo or not but coach Kwesi Appiah will definitely find a perfect fit for these missing spots in his team for the match as he chases Ghana’s first victory of the series with a tiny chance of going to Russia in 2018.
