Muntari may give Ghana boost

JOHANNESBURG, June 11 (Reuters) - Midfielder Sulley Muntari could feature in Ghana's opening World Cup Group D match against Serbia on Sunday after recovering from a thigh injury, Ghana Football Association website said on Friday.

Muntari has trained alone on the sidelines and missed the squad's warm up games since picking up a thigh injury during a friendly against the Netherlands on June 1.

"Muntari played himself into contention for a starting place in the Ghana team against Serbia after training normally with the Black Stars squad in Rustenburg," the Ghana FA website, said.

"The midfielder has recovered from a thigh injury," it said, adding that he took part in the full training session held behind closed doors on Friday morning.
