Ghana coach Avram Grant is unsure whether injured skipper Asamoah Gyan will be fit for tonight’s Africa Cup of Nations final against Ivory Coast in Bata.
Gyan is nursing a pelvic injury received during a collision with Guinea goalkeeper Naby Yattara in the quarterfinals last Sunday and he missed stormy Thursday’s semifinal win over hosts Equatorial Guinea.
Former Chelsea manager Grant said the Black Stars did not train in Bata Friday so he could not assess Gyan’s recovery.
“We can’t say how he is because we could not even train (in Bata),” lamented Grant.
However, the coach said the Black Stars are motivated to rewrite history against the Ivory Coast on Sunday after losing the 1992 final to their west African neighbours on penalties in Dakar.
