Gyan named in Ghana team at African Cup

FRANCEVILLE, Gabon(AP) Striker Asamoah Gyan has been named in Ghana's starting lineup for the Group D opener against Botswana at the African Cup of Nations.

Gyan, who was struggling with a hamstring injury in the buildup to the tournament, will play Tuesday up front alongside Marseille youngster Jordan Ayew. Gyan picked up the injury at the beginning of the month. It initially put his participation at the African Cup in doubt.

Jordan's brother Andre was also named in the Black Stars team as Ghana opened against tournament first-timer Botswana in the first game in Franceville, in the south east corner of Gabon.
