AFCON 2019: Ayew is back! Declared fit to face Cameroun

Ghana Captain, Andre Ayew has been declared fit to face defending champions, Cameroun, in their penultimate Group F game in the ongoing 2019 Afcon.

Ayew reportedly trained Friday ahead of today's between the Black Stars and the Indomitable Lions at the Ismailia Stadium.

This was after he was declared fit by the medical team from an ankle injury he sustained during last Tuesday’s group opener with Benin which ended 2-2.

The skipper missed the team’s training sessions on Wednesday and Thursday.

His return came as a welcome relief to the Stars players and officials, barely 24 hours to the Cameroun game.

Until then, a cloud of uncertainty had engulfed the team’s camp as Ayew’s right ankle injury confined him to the bench as a mere spectator, while his teammates went through the drills towards the big game.

The anxiety heightened on Wednesday when Stars’ midfielder, Thomas Agyepong, who also got injured in the Benin match, was ruled out of Saturday’s game.
