2022 WCQ: Defender Alexander Djiku to miss Ethiopia vs Ghana
LISTEN OCT 13, 2021

Alexander Djiku has been ruled out of Ghana’s next game in the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers due to yellow card accumulation.

The Strasbourg centre back picked up a booking in both games against Zimbabwe in the 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers in the Group G games.

The Black Stars recorded a 3-1 win in the matchday three game at the Cape Coast Stadium and a 1-0 win in the matchday 1-0 in Harare in the matchday four games.

Ghana complete the group stage qualifying phase against Ethiopia and leaders South Africa next month.

Djiku is thus suspended for the Ethiopia game – an away match on November 11 but will be eligible for the final game at home to the Bafana Bafana three days later.

The Black Stars are currently second in Group G of the African qualifiers with 9 points from 4 matches. Only the top team advances to the final play-offs stage for a ticket to Qatar 2022.
