Germany midfielder Sami Khedira, who has been suffering from a right thigh injury, was on Monday passed fit to face Spain in the World Cup semifinal, coach Joachim Loew said.
“Khedira will return to training. All the players are available for the match with the exception of Cacau, who remains doubtful,” said Loew.
Stuttgart midfielder Khedira was substituted in the 77th minute of Saturday’s 4-0 quarterfinal win over Argentina and was forced to skip training on Sunday. Brazilian-born striker Cacau, who picked up a stomach muscle injury last week, has now suffered a back injury.
