The Ghana captain is desperate to get back into action at the Africa Cup of Nations, but will not force the process
Ghana  striker  Asamoah Gyan  has shed light on his injury against Egypt at the  Africa Cup of Nations   on Wednesday.         The skipper was forced off in the first half following what looked like a groin injury, raising concerns that fans may have seen the last of the frontman at the tournament.         Ghana eventually lost 1-0 to the Pharaohs, and will play DR Congo in the quarter-finals after finishing second in the group.   “When I walk, it’s okay but when I try to change direction, that is when I feel the pain,” Gyan told the  BBC  .   “In football, there is a lot of changing of directions, and if I can’t do this, it’s a big problem for me.   “I’m in pain right now. I don’t know the extent of the injury, we have to go for an MRI scan.   “I’m desperate to come back and I’ll try as much as possible, but if I cannot, it’s part of the game.”   Gyan was expected to have an MRI test on Thursday, but the Ghana Football Association are yet to give any details about the outcome.   The 31-year-old, who is the Black Stars' all-time top scorer, scored the only goal of the win over Mali on matchday two.         It is unclear, at this time, if the Al Ahli forward will be fit in time for the quarter-final clash with DR Congo on Sunday.   According to coach Avram Grant, however, "it is not looking good" for the former Sunderland man.
