Michael Essien back in Ghana training

Ghana midfielder Michael Essien has returned to training after picking up a toe injury in the 2-1 loss to United States.

- Anaman: Ghana look to regroup from US loss

The Black Stars say the AC Milan player missed training on Wednesday, but returned to practice on Thursday ahead of the Group G game against Germany on Saturday.

Essien started on the bench in the United States loss in Natal, which leaves Ghana with tough games against Germany and Portugal to qualify for the next round.

Black Stars coach Kwesi Appiah was questioned for his decision to start with Essien and Kevin-Prince Boateng on the bench in the defeat.

Ghana made the quarterfinals at the World Cup in South Africa four years ago -- only the third African team to reach the last eight.
