Striker Jordan Ayew ruled himself out of Ghana’s World Cup qualifying game against Congo after reporting of a stomach bug.
But he has recovered and is in contention to feature in the Premier League when they host compatriot Christian Atsu’s Newcastle United this weekend.
Jordan Ayew was due to travel with the Black Stars to Brazzaville but pictures of the 25-year-old apparently lying in a hospital bed was circulating online on Monday depicted the ‘seriousness’ of his situation which was then being doubted by a section of Ghanaians.
He eventually missed out as the Black Stars thrashed the Congolese 5-1 at their own backyard on Tuesday.
But within 24 hours, he was already back in Wales “fit and well” as he reported to training at his Premier League club Swansea City.
Manager Paul Clement, speaking at his presser ahead of Sunday’s visit by the Magpies, declared the frontman has made a full recovery.
“Jordan is fit and well after missing the [Black Stars] game through illness.”
“There were some worrying pictures of him in a hospital bed.
“He trained on his own yesterday [Wednesday] and he was back in full training today so no problems.
“It was precautionary that he was in hospital so he is okay and available,” the Swansea manager added.
Jordan Ayew will be hoping to pick up from where he left before the international break. He netted his first goal in the Premier League for the Swans this season in their 2-0 win at Crystal Palace.
