Ghana lead striker Asamoah Gyan remains a doubt for the Black Stars as they prepare for their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON 2017) semi-final game against Cameroon at the Franceville Stadium Thursday.
Gyan, who was injured in the third and final Group D game against Egypt and missed the quarter final ictory over the Democratic Republic of Congo, is still not confirmed for the rest of the competition according to the Ghana technical team here.
The player trained on Tuesday and was to train on Wednesday evening as well. However, assistant Coach Maxwell Konadu said they would have to observe him critically after training on Wednesday evening to determine his fate.
He said if the player passed the fitness test on Wednesday he would play in the crucial game on Thursday.
According to Konadu, the team doctors had been working tirelessly on the striker since he got injured and the player had seen improvement in his fitness.
He said though the improvements were impressive they had to be cautious about throwing him into the game. Gyan’s injury situation saddened all of us because he is our top striker,” he said.
Initially we thought it was very serious but further examination indicated it was not that serious and that is why he has seen so much progress. But I cannot confirm whether he will play or not.
