Ghana midfielder Michael Essien sat out the Black Starsâ€™ second training session ahead of their crucial group game against Germany on Saturday.
The AC Milan star was on the sidelines as his colleagues went through the paces at the Rei Pele Stadium in Maceio.
Essien is according to GHANAsoccernet.com sources nursing a toe injury.
The Ghana medical team is however yet to confirm whether the injury is big enough to keep him out of Saturdayâ€™s clash against Germany.
The remaining 22 players completed the session.
Ghana is in desperate need of points following their shocking 2-1 defeat in their opening Group G game against the USA last Monday.
The Black Stars face an early exit from the 2014 World Cup if they are unable to get something out of their next game against the three-time winners in Fortaleza.
