Ghana striker Kwesi Appiah declares himself fit for Black Stars AFCON training camp

New Ghana striker Kwesi Appiah has declared himself fit to join the Black Stars for their training camp ahead of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

The 24-year-old, who has his maiden Ghana call-up last week, suffered an injury setback in a league match for his club over the weekend.

The striker came off with a knock at the half-time of Cambridge United’s 1-0 defeat to Southend United in League Two on Boxing Day.

This sparked fears that Appiah could be ruled out of the tournament to be held in Equatorial Guinea next month.

But the England-based striker says he is fully fit to start training with the Black Stars ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations.

“Looking forward to the pre #AFCON training camp with @ghanafaofficial Fit and ready to go!! ??… Soon touch down Ghana,” Appiah wrote on Twitter.

Appiah, who plays in the fourth-tier of English football, was a surprise inclusion in Ghana’s provisional 31-man squad for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
