Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari is still struggling with the calf injury as he did not train with the Black Stars in their full training training session in Kenya on Wednesday.
This is threatening to rule him out of Sundayâ€™s crucial Africa Cup of Nations clash with Congo.
Despite being uncertain for the vital game in Brazzaville on Sunday, the Sunderland player says it is right for him to be with the Black Stars.
Muntari did not train with his team-mates on Wednesday because of the calf injury and insists he must get clearance from the Ghana medical team before he can play for the Black Stars on Sunday.
"I am feeling some pain. I have to see the team doctor to certify whether I would be able to play or not," Muntari said.
"Even if I don't play in Congo, it is important to be with the team at this time."
The revelation shows that Muntari has turned a new commitment page with his country after being accused of being unruly.
Ghana lead Group I with four points from two matches and must win the game in Congo ti brighten their chances of reaching the 2012 Nations Cup.
