Uruguay defender Diego Godin could miss Friday's FIFA World Cup™ quarter-final against Ghana because of a left thigh injury, a team spokesman said on Monday.

"Godin injured his left quadriceps and at the moment he is uncertain for the game against Ghana," said Matias Faral.

The Villarreal player suffered the injury in the second half of the 2-1 last-16 win over Korea Republic in Port Elizabeth on Saturday and was replaced by Mauricio Victorino.
