Ghana midfielder Sulley Muntari has started training at the Black Stars camping hoping to be fit for Sundayâ€™s clash with Congo.
The Sunderland star started jogging at the teamâ€™s camp in Nairobi on Thursday night as he looks to have recovered from a calf injury.
The midfielder suffered the setback while playing in the English Premier League and travelled to join the Black Stars despite the injury.
Ghana team doctors have worked on the problem and he is responding to treatment.
He is likely to start kicking on Friday which will be a massive boost for the Black Stars ahead of the vital game in Brazzaville.
Ghana must be Congo to brighten their chances of reaching the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
