Ghana's two injured players Hans Sarpei and Anthony Annan have returned to full fitness at the African Cup of Nations.

The two foreign-based players were major doubts for the opening Group B matches of the tournament in Angola.

But they both trained fully with the entire squad on Sunday, in anticipation of their clash against Togo.

Annan suffered a knee injury before the Black Stars started their training camp in South Africa.

He could not train with the entire team in their Nelspruit pre-tournament camp because of the injury but was part of the full squad during Sunday's training.

Sarpei suffered a slight hamstring injury during their camping in South Africa but was also able to train fully on Sunday.

This means coach Milovan Rajevac will have the full compliments of his squad when they start their campaign on Friday against Ivory Coast as Michael Essien is expected to have joined by then.
