Ivory Coast striker Sebastien Haller was ruled out for “several weeks” on Friday after the Africa Cup of Nations winner suffered a recurrence of an ankle injury, his club, Borussia Dortmund, said.

The 29-year-old, scored the game-winning goal as Ivory Coast overcame Nigeria 2-1 in the AFCON final last weekend, but was replaced late in the match.

Dortmund, who go to Wolfsburg on Saturday, are presently fourth in the Bundesliga, 15 points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen.
