Ghana coach Kwesi Appiah hailed his squad for a “peaceful” build-up to their group opener against a Benin side desperate to end a winless record at the African football showpiece.
Appiah was in the first of two spells as the Black Stars coach when his players threatened to boycott a match at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil over unpaid bonuses.
The embarrassing stand-off was resolved only when a jet carrying trunks of cash arrived in South America and the players were paid in dollars.
According to reports ahead of kick off, Appiah has benched Gyan for the opening match.
