Appiah now has a full strength squad to choose from following the late arrival of US-based defender Harrison Afful.

Inter Milan midfielder, Kwadwo Asamoah, who picked up a knock in training on Wednesday morning, has regained full fitness and traveled with the squad.

Ghana play Kenya at 1pm on Saturday. They beat Ethiopia 5-0 in June 2017 to start their journey to Cameroon 2019.
