A shoulder injury to Mali’s Yves Bissouma will see the midfielder miss the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations. Bissouma is, however, expected to undergo surgery on the shoulder in the coming days.
Contrary to reports, the Brighton player has not fractured his shoulder, but will have to undergo surgery to fix the problem which is understood to be a historic injury.
The former Lille player was in Mali’s AFCON provisional squad and was slated to join up with the side at their training camp in Kabala, Bamako.
However, Bissouma will now miss out, causing coach Mohamed Magassouba to change his plans for the tournament.
Mali are in Group E of the Africa Cup of Nations draw and will begin their tournament against debutants Mauritania, before facing Tunisia and then Angola.
