WIDE OF TRAINING SESSION STORY: Two days after their 4-0 victory over Portugal, the German national team was hard at work, looking forward to their next World Cup match against Ghana/ They held a training session at 4pm local (2000GMT) at their base in Santo Andre, the same time of day that the Ghana match will take place in the city of Fortaleza on Saturday (June 21). Defender Mats Hummels was the only player to miss the training. At an earlier news conference assistant coach Hansi Flick said Germany defender Mats Hummels was undergoing extensive treatment for a thigh injury but it is still uncertain whether he will be fit for the match. Flick also indicated that - if Hummels is fit - Germany would field the same starting line-up on Saturday against Ghana that thrashed Portugal 4-0 in their Group G opening match. Hummels, a bulwark of Germany's defence who also scored a goal in Germany's 4-0 win over Portugal, suffered a severe bruise in his right thigh in the 73rd minute of the Portugal match after colliding in the air with Eder. Hummels had to be helped off the pitch and has not trained with his team since. Flick said that if Hummels could not play on Saturday then right back Jerome Boateng would likely move into the central defence with Per Mertesacker and Shkodran Mustafi could start as right back. Mustafi replaced Hummels on Monday. Flick said that captain Philipp Lahm, who has also played the right back position for Germany, would remain in midfield. Boateng was also injured in the Portugal match, suffering partially tore ligaments in his right thumb after falling in the first half. He will have to wear a protective splint for the next six weeks. Both Hummels and Boateng were instrumental in Germany's victory over Portugal and would be difficult to replace. Germany has a surfeit of midfielders but are short on defenders.
