The Stars missing AFCON 2017 because of Injury – SPECIAL FEATURE

We are only one day away from the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations. But some of the stars who were called up will miss out due to injury. Ghanamansports lists the players who would be missing out because of injury.

One of the tournament’s dark horses, Morocco, has borne much of the brunt of destabilizing injuries. So much so that it could influence their chances of coming through the group stages.

On the other hand, none of the teams in group A featured in our list of injured players set to miss AFCON 2017. Will their luck stretch to the tournament itself?

Here is the full list of the stars who will not be in Gabon:

Pape Souaré – Senegal
Position: Defender
Injury: Thigh (road accident)
