The striker could not complete Wednesday morning’s training session and now sources within the team have confirmed to TV3 Sports that is highly unlikely that he will play.

Gyan has struggled with injuries this season but claimed on arrival in Ghana for the double header “I wasn’t fit at all due to those injuries so it was quite frustrating but right now am back. I think I am back and I feel good in my body.”

Ghana coach Avram Grant had also claimed he had no doubts about Gyan’s fitness because he had played in his club’s last two games. Now he might have to find a replacement but with Majeed Warris in good goal scoring form and Ebenezer Assifuah working hard, Gyan’s likely absence might not hit Ghana as hard
