Ghana hopeful on Gyan fitness

A Ghana FA statement said the striker had returned to the team's base in Oyem in northern Gabon to continue treatment.

Ghana's forward Asamoah Gyan (R) heads the ball with Uganda's midfielder Tony Mawejje during the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations group D football match between Ghana and Uganda in Port-Gentil on January 17, 2017

A Ghana FA statement said the striker had returned to the team's base in Oyem in northern Gabon to continue treatment on the thigh injury he picked up in the 1-0 defeat to Egypt in their last group game in Port-Gentil.

"Tests in the Gabonese capital of Libreville have shown that the injury is not as bad as initially feared," said the statement.

"Gyan has now joined the Black Stars camp in Oyem to undergo treatment to make him fully fit."

Gyan, the former Udinese, Rennes and Sunderland striker, is currently on 99 caps and 49 goals for his country.
