Gyan was a concern for Ghana after picking up an ankle knock in training on Monday and he has missed the last two sessions as a pre-caution.

However, the 24-year-old expects to shake off the problem as he looks to add to the three goals he has already scored in the tournament.

"The ankle is getting better. I had a knock during the game last time," said Gyan.

"Yesterday I felt something bad and I had to go out (of training) and rest today as well but tomorrow I think I will be fine.

"I will be fine for the game on Friday. It is nothing really bad. I need about two days off and I will be fine."

Gyan is expecting a tough test against Uruguay but he insists the South Americans hold no fears for the Black Stars.

"Uruguay are a difficult side but we don't care who we are going to play against. We are ready to play against anybody," added Gyan.
