Captain Asamoah Gyan has recovered from injury in time to make the Ghana's starting line up for the 2015 AFCON final match against Ivory Coast.

Gyan suffered an abdominal injury after Guinean goalkeeper Naby Yattara kicked him in the dying minutes of the quarter-finals match between the two sides.

But Gyan has returned to partner Kwesi Appiah in attack for the Black Stars as they take on the Elephants at the Estadio de Bata on Sunday evening.

Coach Avram Grant has maintained his defensive quartet made up of Harrison Afful and Baba Rahman as fullbacks with John Boye and Jonathan Mensah in the central positions.

Andre Ayew and Christian Atsu will start on the flanks for Ghana with Mubarak Wakaso and Afriyie Acquah once again playing in central midfield.

The match is scheduled to kick off at 7pm GMT.

Black Stars XI: Razak Brimah, Harrison Afful, Baba Rahman, Jonathan Mensah, John Boye, Mubarak Wakaso, Afriyie Acquah, Andre Ayew, Christian Atsu, Asamoah Gyan,Kwesi Appiah
