Black Stars' trio onathan Mensah, Afriyie Acquah and Jordan Ayew have been ruled out of Tuesday's international friendly with South Africa.

The players have been ruled out by injuries, according to the Ghana Football Association.

A Ghana FA publication read: ''Some players including Jonathan Mensah, Jordan Ayew and Afriyie Acquah could not travel with the team due to injuries.''

Mensah picked an injury before the match against Uganda and was dropped from the starting line-up against the Cranes.
