The Newcastle United winger limped out of last night’s group game against defending champions Cameroon with a hamstring problem.

Atsu is now being assessed ahead of Ghana’s final group game.

It is feared that the 27-year-old – who found his opportunities limited last season by the form of Miguel Almiron – could miss the rest of the tournament.

Atsu is due back on Tyneside later next month.
