Milovan Rajevac was handed a major injury boost with the return to training of defender John Mensah and midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng on Thursday.

But Hans Adu Sarpei did not train on Thursday.

All three had been nursing injuries picked during the last 16 match against the United States but the return of Mensah and Boateng comes at a time when Ghana would be missing Andre Ayew and Jonathan Mensah through suspension.

Despite their return, Milovan Rajevac he would make late a decision on the fitness of all his injured players.

"After the second-round match against USA it was a problem as to who would be going to play against Uruguay," Rajevac said.

"We cannot count on (suspended) Andre Ayew and Jonathan Mensah and they will not be playing tomorrow and we also have five injured players.

"It will be up to our medical team to make them fit and we will see who will play. It all depends on what the medical team decides tomorrow."
