Mensah confident of quick recovery
"I'm feeling better with each passing day," Mensah said. "The doctor said after the scan in Libreville that it is a minor injury, I'm undergoing treatment and that in no time I will be back playing again."
However, the Lyon defender did sit out Sunday morning's training in Ngouni. Mensah was sent off in the opening Group D match against Botswana in Franceville, but he has served out a one-match ban and will be available for selection if he is fit for Wednesday's final group game against Guinea.
His return will give coach Goran Stevanovic a pleasant selection headache as his four central defenders will all be available with Hoffenheim's Isaac Vorsah having served a two-match suspension.
Younger defenders John Boye and Jonathan Mensah have covered in the absence of John Mensah and Vorsah. And, the centre-back said he was delighted that in his absence Ghana defeated Mali 2-0 to stay top of Group D and stayed on course to secure a place in the quarter-finals.
"I was very excited that in my absence we won very well. I saw how they were all pumped up for this game in the morning of match day and I knew they meant business," he said.
