Willian allays injury fears ahead of Germany match
Brazilian midfielder Willian has declared himself fit for his country's crucial World Cup Semi Final with Germany tomorrow evening, after suffering a very slight injury in training over the weekend.
The Chelsea man, 25, told FIFA's official website: "I am feeling great. I was hurt on my left side during training yesterday (Saturday) and it bothers me a little bit but it is nothing significant and it won't stop me training today."
As a contender to replace star talisman Neymar, Willian continued: "Neymar sets the standard for us. He is capable of deciding any game, so playing without him will be difficult."
"We know the quality that we have. We are all very sad that losing him but now we are even stronger after what happened and we can continue to pursue our dream."
