Listen to article

Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan is fit to play Thursday's Nations Cup semi-final clash after it appeared he picked up an injury Sunday's quarter-final match.

The 25-year-old who struck in the 16th minute to secure qualification to the last four of the tournament complained of pains in his thighs and was substituted on 62 minutes.

The Rennes forward trained with the team on Monday but had packed-ice around his left thigh as a precautionary measure.

The team's medical doctors have allayed fears of him being sidelined for Ghana's next match in Luanda.

Asamaoh is one of the few experienced players in the Ghana squad after injuries ruled out five key players.
