Germany vs Ghana team news: Germans unchanged with Ghana bringing in Kevin-Prince Boateng
Hermany stick with the side that saw off Portugal 4-0
Saturday 21 June 2014
Germany and Ghana lock horns in the second game of today with the Germans looking to pick up where they left off in their first match.
Germany got their campaign off to a flying start with a 4-0 rout of Portugal, Thomas Muller scoring a hat-trick. Unsurprisingly they have opted for an unchanged team, with centre-back Mats Hummels shaking off any injury concerns.
Ghana meanwhile know that after their opening game loss to USA, defeat against Germany would all but spell the end of their World Cup. They have made one change, bringing in Kevin-Prince Boateng, who impressed off the bench in their opener and will therefore line up against half-brother Jerome who is in the German side.
