Asamoah Gyan is facing a late fitness test to determine whether he will be available for Ghana's semi-final clash against Cameroon in the African Cup of Nations on Thursday.

The 31-year-old missed the 2-1 quarter-final victory over DR Congo on Sunday due to a thigh injury he picked up in the 1-0 defeat by Egypt in their last Group D game.

"Our doctors have been working on him and gradually he is picking up," assistant coach Maxwell Konadu told reporters in Franceville on Wednesday, according to Ghanasoccernet.

"We can’t confirm at the moment whether he is going to play or not but he was able to jog and do some small ball work yesterday so hopefully, but we will just have to wait and see what happens."

Gyan scored the only goal in Ghana's 1-0 group-stage victory over Mali.

The UAE-based striker is appearing in his sixth Nations Cup.
