FORTALEZA, Brazil, June 21 (Reuters) - Germany fielded an unchanged side for Saturday's World Cup Group G game against Ghana on Saturday with Mats Hummels retaining his place despite suffering a thigh injury in the 4-0 defeat of Portugal in their opening match.
Defender Per Mertesacker wins his 100th cap for Germany.
The Ghanaians made three changes to the side that lost 2-1 to the United States in their opener.
That means that just as at the World Cup in 2010, the Boateng half-brothers will play against each other, with Jerome starting for Germany and Kevin-Prince for Ghana. (Reporting by Gideon Long, editing by Ed Osmond)
