Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas is a doubt for Wednesday's World Cup semi-final against Germany after injuring his right leg in training, the team spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

She said in a short statement that an X-ray had shown no bone damage and "his participation had not been ruled out" for the second semi in Durban's Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Fabregas picked up the injury in Monday's training at the Spanish base in Potchefstroom.

The midfielder has yet to start in the tournament so far but came on as a second-half substitute for Fernando Torres in Spain's 1-0 quarter-final win over Paraguay on Saturday.

He was already struggling with a shoulder injury picked up in that match and had said he was prepared to have a pain-killing injection on it so he could play against the Germans if needed.

Fabregas helped Spain win the 2008 European Championship in Vienna when they beat Germany 1-0 in the final.
