Asamoah Gyan and Dede Ayew both picked up knocks in the team’s last game and would miss the trip to Congo.
The Stars take on the Congolese in Brazzaville on Tuesday, needing nothing less than a win to maintain their slim hopes of qualifying for next year’s World Cup.
The loss of two of the team’s most experienced stars would be a big loss to Kwesi Appiah at a time when he’s drowning and needs all the help he can get.
