Annan worried over fitness level at AFCON
Anthony Annan has admitted he is battling for fitness
The Osasuna player has been an injury doubt since picking up an ankle injury last week during a pre-tournament friendly against Egypt in Abu Dhabi.
But Annan was a second half appearance last Sunday in Ghana's 2-2 draw with DR Congo at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
It was after the match the combative midfielder admitted he was far from his best form.
"I am not 100% fit. I am working on my fitness level and hopefully, I should be in line against Mali," Annan said.
''The team's medics are doing a great job and in no time I expect to be fully fit without any problems.
"We're disappointed with the result but we must understand DR Congo is also a good side and played well.
"We need to go back to the drawing board to see where we went wrong. But I’m confident we’ll bounce back."
