Daniel Opare missed Ghana's training session on Monday as he continues to nurse an injury ahead of the final group game against Portugal.

The full back sat on the sidelines with his right knee heavily strapped in ice as his teammates went through the paces at the Rei Pele Stadium.

The Black Stars were however handed a massive injury boost with the return of John Boye and Kevin-Prince Boateng who didn't train with the side in Sunday's session.

The media were allowed in to observe the first fifteen minutes of training after which they were ushered out for the in-camera session.

Ghana remain in contention to qualify from Group G but will need to beat Portugal comprehensively and hope Germany wins against the USA in the final round of matches on Thursday to progress.

    This is no news as his presence will not aid Ghana anyways. Am surprised he even made the trip. AA should must be blamed if we do not make it out of the group. We the fans deserve the heart attacks we are getting from this world cup. Despite what coach Milo did, many of us said he was not a good coach. Milo could have taken Ghana to places.

    Ooh sorry Opare! You're a strong player that's why Jones from USA team couldn't pass you not even once but rather defending you and Atsu, get well soon

    I doubt the mumu milo coach would have managed to draw or win against Germany. Milo was horrible that's why he was fired from his other coaching jobs
