World Cup 2026Q: Kamaldeen Sulemana, Abdul Mumin withdraw from Ghana squad for Madagascar and Comoros games

Defender Abdul Mumin and winger Kamaldeen Sulemana have withdrawn from the Black Stars squad for the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Madagascar and Comoros this month.

The pair were named in Chris Hughton’s 25-man squad for the two games and were expected to report to camp on Monday, November 13.

However, a late injury to Mumin means the Rayo Vallecano centre-back will be unavailable for the two games on Friday, November 17 and Tuesday, November 21, respectively.

Mumin was only handed a first Black Stars call-up under Hughton but would now have to wait for another time to make the Irish gaffer’s team after the injury setback.

Kamaldeen, who also missed the friendly games against Mexico and the United States of America last month, will once again be absent for the opening games of the qualifiers.

The players have, however, been replaced by Medeama Sporting Club’s Nurudeen Abdulai and Leicester City’s Abdul Fatawu Issahaku.

The Black Stars will jet off to Kumasi on Tuesday to commence preparations for the two games.
