Spain’s Cesc Fabregas looks set to be fit for his country’s World Cup semi-final clash with Germany.
The two sides will battle it out in Durban on Wednesday, and Spain boss Vicente del Bosque has also received positive news about defender Carlos Puyol.
Fabregas has been deployed late on from the bench in three of his side’s game so far, replacing Xavi against Honduras and Fernando Torres on the other two occasions.
The Arsenal captain fell heavily on his shoulder in the quarter-final victory over Paraguay, but now, having been given all clear, could even be in-line to replace the underperforming Torres in Spain’s starting eleven.
Barcelona defender Carlos Puyol has also been given the green light by medics after suffering blurred vision in the last match when he was hit in the face by the ball.
