International Round-Up: Appiah Injury Blow

8 June 2015


Crystal Palace striker Kwesi Appiah looks to have suffered a serious injury whilst away on international duty this week.

The 24-year-old underwent tests on a suspected anterior cruciate ligament injury, which he sustained during Ghana training, ruling him out of their AFCON 2017 Qualifier against Mauritius on Sunday 14th June. The Black Stars also face Togo in a friendly tonight, though Appiah will obviously play no part.

Barry Bannan was an unused substitute in Scotland's 1-0 win over Qatar on Friday, whilst James McArthur played for 46 minutes. Both will likely feature in the Scots' Euro 2016 Qualifier against the Republic of Ireland on Saturday 13th June.

The Democratic Republic of Congo's match against Burkina Faso was cancelled for organisational reasons earlier this week, though Yannick Bolasie should still represent his country tomorrow against Cameroon.

The rest of the Eagles' international stars are yet to feature, but there are plenty of games coming up over the next week. Here is a breakdown of each match featuring a Palace player:
