ASAMOAH Gyan’s fitness has handed Coach Avram Grant a big boost ahead of Ghana’s FIFA World Cup qualifier against Comoros.

The Black Stars will line up against Comoros on November 13 in what pundits believe the Ghanaians can come out with a clean sheet even without the services of the skipper.

But it comes as a pleasant news for the Stars trainer who would want to assess his skipper who has been inactive for a while due to injuries that restricted his playing time.

Gyan was absent in Ghana’s last two games against Rwanda in a qualifier as well as Canada in an international friendly due to an injury that also restricted his playing time with his new club in China.

But interviews he granted a section of the local media suggested he is fully fit and ready to return to action for both club and country with the Comoros clash the one to stage his return.

Gyan said he will be ready for selection for Comoros tomorrow’s week.

He told Accra based Asempa FM that “I am ok now and if anyone wants to judge me, it should be at the time when I am on the pitch and fully fit, and not when I am playing at half strength or not fully fit”.

“I have had some injury issues in the past but I am ready to go now.”

The Black Stars will travel to Comoros to play the Islanders on November 13 with the return leg scheduled for November 17.

That game will, however, come too soon for Chelsea loanee at FC Bournemouth, Christian Atsu who returned to the Stamford Bridge outfit for medical assessment.

Atsu is suffering from a minor shin fracture which has ruled him out of action for Bournemouth and the Black Stars.

He also missed the international friendly against Canada together with Gyan and Andre Ayew who is also fit now and awaiting invitation for the Comoros game.
