Ghana striker Asamoah Gyan is winning his battle to be fit for Friday's quarter-final clash with Uruguay in Johannesburg.
The 24-year-old has been forced to sit out his country's last two training sessions with an ankle problem sustained during the win over the United States in the last-16 meeting.
But the Rennes player is confident he will be ready to try and improve on his tally of three goals in four games in South Africa. Gyan said: "I will be fine for the game on Friday. It is nothing really bad. I need about two days off and I will be fine."
He added: "The ankle is getting better. I had a knock during the game last time."
