Lyon defender John Mensah has regained full fitness and will lead Ghana against Tunisia in a 2012 Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final here later Sunday.

Mensah, who suffered a thigh muscle injury in a group game against Botswana, will start ahead of Isaac Vorsah, the Ghana Football Association confirmed.

Mensah will play alongside Rennes defender John Boye, who has impressed on his Nations Cup debut.

Ghana coach Goran Stevanovic has also brought back AC Milan loan signing Sulley Muntari, while first-choice goalkeeper Adam Kwarasey will keep his place despite doubts about his availability due to a leg injury.
