2021 AFCON: I Miss My Black Stars Teammates - Djiku

Black Stars defender, Alexander Djiku is unhappy after missing Ghana’s 2021 AFCON qualifying game against South Africa in Johannesburg on Thursday March 25.


The Strasbourg anchorman is out of coach CK Akonnor’s squad due to injury.


Djiku could not have made the final squad regardless of being fit due to French Ligue 1 and 2 clubs voting against the release of African players for international assignments.


Due to strict COVID-19 rules in France, players outside the European Union will not be available for their national teams.


The 26-year-old missed last weekend’s Ligue 1 game against Lens at home.


He rues the absence of being with the Black Stars for the AFCON qualifiers.


He tweeted:

The Black Stars of Ghana play South Africa in the penultimate 2021 AFCON qualifier at the FNB Stadium.


Ghana are now tied on 9 points as South Africa and Sudan who beat São Tomé 2-0 on March 24 in São Tomé.


With group C now wide open, the Black Stars must at least pull a draw in South Africa and grab all three points against São Tomé in the final game at the Accra Sports Stadium on March 28.


Two qualified countries from group C will be in Cameroon for the AFCON in January, 2022.
