Gabon star Mario Lemina has been ruled out of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations after suffering an injury which will sideline him for about two weeks.

The 23-year-old Juventus midfielder pulled up with a back problem while preparing for today’s game against Burkina Faso and did not get involved in the team at all afterwards.

According to several reports, Lemina has been told he cannot play again for 15 days or more which means he is highly unlikely to feature for the Black panthers again in the AFCON.

It is not yet clear whether he will remain with the host nation or return to Turin for treatment.
