Goran welcomes Gyan's return

Goran Stevanovic is happy to have striker Asamoah Gyan back in contention for a place in his team against Mali on Saturday in the African Cup of Nations.

Gyan returned to training on Friday after a knock picked up against Botswana forced him off Thursday's session.

“I am sure Gyan is ready for the game. Gyan had some problem yesterday but today he is much better," Stevanovic said.

Both sides won 1-0 in their first matches and ahead of their clash, would be driven to take all the spoils to ensure their places in the quarter-finals.

With the exception of John Mensah and Isaac Vorsah, who are both suspended for today's game, Stevanovic insists he has a squad ready ready to always step in.

“For the tournament, I repeat again, I need 20 ready players. For this tournament, the team to win is the team with a stronger bench,” he said.

“And I hope other players who get the chance would do well.”
