Asamoah Gyan has been excused from the Black Stars due to injury.
Skipper Asamoah Gyan has been ruled out from the two international friendlies against Senegal and Mali in France.
Black Stars coach Avram Grant wants the Al Ain striker to fully recover from a slight injury he sustained at the club level.
Gyan picked up a thigh strain in the lead up to Al Ain’s 1-1 draw at Al Dhafra on Friday.
Meanwhile, Avram Grant has named a 22-man squad for the warm-up games scheduled for March 28 (Senegal) and against Mali three days later.
