Now the former Borussia Dortmund striker has to sit out for the time being. During investigations, a “lesion” of the heart was found, the Gabon Football Association announced on Facebook on Friday. A more precise diagnosis was not initially available.

The Arsenal striker missed the game against Ghana in the evening. The medical department of the African continental association did not want to take any risks, the Gabon association said.

Aubameyang’s teammates Axel Meyé (26) and Mario Lemina (28) had to pass for the same reason. Gabon had won 1-0 against the Comoros at the start.
