Asamoah Gyan cleared to face Sudan on Sunday
Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan has been passed fit to play in the crucial 2014 World Cup qualifier against Sudan.
The Al Ain striker was withdrawn as a precautionary measure after complaining of thigh pains in the Black Stars’ friendly win over second tier Deportivo on Thursday.
Further examination of the feared injury Friday however showed no damage in the thigh.
This means the 27-year-old is back in contention for a place in Ghana’s starting lineup for Sunday’s game at the Baba Yara Stadium.
The Ghana team doctors will however continue to monitor Gyan’s situation before the game on Sunday.
The ex Sunderland hitman is now expected to take part in the team’s final training session on Saturday evening at the venue of the game to further prove his fitness.
