Ghana and Newcastle United winger Christian Atsu has been ruled out of the rest of the Africa Cup of Nations with a hamstring injury.

Atsu was forced off just 15 minutes into the Black Stars' goalless draw with Group F rivals Cameroon on Saturday.

The 27-year-old has returned to England for further treatment with the Tyneside club.

Ghana finished top of Group F after beating Guinea-Bissau 2-0 on Tuesday.

Jordan Ayew gave Kwesi Appiah's side the lead in Suez before Thomas Partey completed the scoring in the second half.

Four-time winners Ghana will play Group E runners-up Tunisia in the last 16 on Monday.
