AFCON 2019: Jonathan Mensah declares himself fit to face Tunisia

Ghana center back, Jonathan Mensah, has declared himself fit to play against Tunisia in the round of 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations on Monday.

The Columbus Crew defender injured himself in Ghana’s 0-0 draw against Cameroon during the group stages.

He subsequently missed the Black Stars’ 2-0 win over Guinea Bissau in their last Group F encounter.

“I feel very good now. I’m getting better and better now. I leave it for the head coach and the medical team to decide but I’ve been communicating with the medical staff about how I feel but everything is fine,” Mensah said at the team’s pre-match press conference.

Ghana take on the Tunisians at the Ismailia Stadium on Monday night at 9pm local time, 19:00GMT.
