Anthony Annan makes light training

Ghana midfielder Anthony Annan had light training on Saturday night in Abu Dhabi as he recovers from injury.

The Spain-based player trained alone at the Zayed Sports Complex as doctors work on his ankle injury to enable him gain full fitness ahead of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

Annan jogged under the supervision of Black Stars team doctor Baba Adam while the team had its full training ahead of Sunday's clash with Tunisia.

He is unlikely to play a part in the match against the Carthage Eagles as a precautionary measure.

Annan was taken off during Thursday's 3-0 African Cup of Nations warm up win over Egypt in Abu Dhabi.

The midfielder fell awkwardly when he went for a challenge in the first half of the match at the Zayed Sports Complex.

The Black Stars are training in Abu Dhabi ahead of their participation in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
