Relieved Ghana coach reports no further casualties

JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A relieved Milovan Rajevac reported a clean bill of health for his Ghana World Cup squad after concluding preparations in Britain at the weekend.

Ghana beat Latvia 1-0 in Milton Keynes on Saturday in the last of their pre-tournament warm-up games.

"For us the most important thing was that no player got injured," the coach said. "So after (the) match, everything is OK," he told the Ghana Football Association website.

The Africans suffered a major setback last week with the withdrawal through injury of Michael Essien who had failed to recover from a knee injury.

Another key midfielder, Sulley Muntari missed the match against Latvia because of a thigh strain but is expected to play in the opening Group D match against Serbia next week.
