Annan hopes to pass fitness test



Ghana midfielder Anthony Annan hopes to pass a late fitness test to be ready for Wednesday night's semifinal clash against Burkina Faso.

The Osasuna player has been on the treatment table since aggravating an ankle injury during Ghana's opener against DR Congo on 20 January in Port Elizabeth.

Annan just began full scale training, but he is yet to convince the medical team about his fitness level.

"I got injured when he played the friendly game against Egypt before we came here (South Africa), so I think now I'm improving," Annan said.

"I'm going to do my best to train very hard. I hope there will be no injury again and all the pains will go so that I will be able to play the coming games.

"So, all will depend on the coach who will decide which players will want to play.

"I'm there, I will train and I will do my best and I will make sure that I will be injury free."

Annan is making his fourth Africa Cup of Nations finals appearance.
