Gyan: I’ll be ready for AFCON


Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has declared himself fit and ready to fire the Black Stars to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations title.

The Turkey-based striker has been plagued with injuries this season, hampering his desire to be in top shape for the tournament in Egypt in June.

 “I am now fully fit. I have started training now, but I am looking forward to playing in competitive games to gain much fitness,” he said.

“Some people are wondering whether I will make the final squad for the AFCON or not.

“They shouldn’t worry. The only thing I wish for is to be fully fit before the competition begins. If you have good health you have everything.”

The 33-year-old has participated in every single Africa Cup of Nations tournament since 2008, when Ghana hosted.

He also remains the country’s all-time top-scorer, having netted an impressive 51 goals in 106 international games.

Ghana is four-time champions of the event and last annexed the diadem in Libya 1982. –GNA
