Crystal Palace winger Jeffrey Schlupp has sustained an injury whilst on international duty.
Schlupp started for Ghana in their World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia, along with club team-mate Jordan Ayew, but was forced off after only 27 minutes of the match.
Crystal Palace fans are now waiting to discover the severity of the problem.
Schlupp has appeared in all four competitive matches so far under new manager Patrick Vieira.
The 28-year-old sustained two injuries last season, the first a knock and the second a more serious hamstring issue which kept him out for ten matches at the start of the year (via Transfermarkt).
What about Palace’s other injuries?
Luka Milivojevic and new signing Michael Olise could make their first appearances of the season shortly after the international break.
But Eberechi Eze and Nathan Ferguson remain out long-term after suffering Achilles injuries.
Fan feed Palace XTRA relayed the news from Ghana, and here’s what supporters made of it.
