Owusu-Abeyie in Ghana squad
Hosts Ghana have included Dutch-born striker Quincy Owusu-Abeyie in their final squad for the Africa Cup of Nations.
Owusu-Abeyie was only cleared to play for the Black Stars by Fifa, football's world governing body, hours before the squad was announced.
The striker, who plays for Celta Vigo in Spain, had a superb showing for Holland as they hosted the Under-20 World Cup in 2005 but then applied to play for the Black Stars last year.
But Ghana coach Claude Le Roy has dropped in-form defender Francis Dickoh, while Matthew Amoah and Daniel Opare miss out through injury.
