Ghanaian striker, Asamoah Gyan, stresses team's readiness for AFCON

The 33-year-old speaks on the Black Stars preparations for the continental showpiece which kicks off on Friday

Ghanaian striker, Asamoah Gyan, has assured the team’s readiness for the Africa Cup of Nations, after drawing with South Africa in a warm-up fixture.

The Black Stars, who are seeking to win their fifth continental title and a first since 1982, are currently in their final week of preparations in the United Arab Emirates for the June 21-July 19 championships in Egypt.

Saturday’s draw with South Africa was their last and final test tie, having earlier lost 1-0 to Namibia.

Quoting the striker:

“We are ready, for the tournament”

“We’ve been working so hard in the past 10 days – the weather is also not helping – but we are still fighting. We are pushing harder and harder.

“We have done well. Training has not been easy: we have gone through some drills behind the scenes that the camera didn’t capture, so we know the kind of training we have done.

“The tournament itself is a different ball-game altogether but we are happy there is no injury in the camp.

Ghana has drawn against defending champions Cameroon, Benin and Guinea-Bissau in Group F of the AFCON finals.
