Rennes defender is set to be ruled out of the Black Stars international friendly against China due to a hamstring injury he sustained in a preseason game against Lorient.
can report that the defender has still not recovered fully from the injury with barely a week for the match to be played.
Boye has been training alone at the French club together with other injured players such as Kevin Theophile (thigh) and Aelxander Tetteh, even as the whole team has been relocated to the town of Guichen.
