The Black Stars held their training ahead of their second group game against Gabon with the skipper of the side, Andre Ayew.

The team trained at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium Annex on Wednesday morning ahead of the game on Friday evening.

The 30-year-old did not arrive with the team for the training session after picking up an injury in Ghana’s narrow defeat to Morocco on Monday in their Group C opener.

Andre's failure to train with the team raises concerns about his availability for Ghana’s crucial Group C game with Gabon at the Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo in Yaoundé on Friday.

Coach Milovan Rajevac had the rest of his players available for the training session with the exception of yet-to-return Ajax star Mohammed Kudus.

Kudus is expected to arrive in the team’s camp today to join his teammates for the rest of the tournament.

The Black Stars need to win against Gabon and Comoros to keep their chances of playing the next round of the compeetition.
