Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang: Unclear whether Arsenal striker will play in Gabon’s final AFCON group game

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was left out of Gabon’s team to face Ghana due to a minor heart condition; the striker has recovered from coronavirus and trained this week; Arsenal satisfied his condition is not serious; the club is in touch with forwarding, who is feeling okay.

Arsenal has been in touch with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and is confident his condition is not serious after a heart issue ruled him out of Gabon’s draw against Ghana at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Aubameyang tested positive for coronavirus on his arrival in Cameroon for the tournament last week, but he returned a negative test this week and trained on Thursday.

Gabonese officials will now continue to check Aubameyang’s health over the next few days, but it is unclear at this stage whether he will be able to play in Gabon’s final group game against Morocco on Tuesday.

They have also been in touch with the player, who is feeling okay and has trained for the last two days.

Aubameyang is yet to appear for Gabon at this year’s AFCON.

“Gabon fans have worried about the future of their captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

“Also, Gabon coach Patrice Neveu says they’ll continue to do tests on him and monitor his situation.

“A member of the Gabon team management also said they’re in touch with Arsenal to check his progress as the days go by.

“It’s unclear whether he will be available for their last group game against Morocco.”

Ghana’s Africa Cup of Nations campaign is in peril after the four-time champions conceded a late equalizer against Gabon to draw their Group C Match 1-1.

Ghana’s captain Andre Ayew blasted home a superb left-foot shot for an 18th-minute lead but Jim Allevinah leveled with two minutes left to rescue a draw for Gabon.

A feisty encounter ended in scuffles and a red card for Ghana’s Benjamin Tetteh for his part in the post-match brawl.

The draw leaves Ghana with one point from two Group C matches and in danger of elimination if they do not win their last game against Comoros on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Gabon is second in the group on four points and needs just a point from their final match against table-toppers Morocco on Tuesday to qualify for the last 16.
