Oscar: 'I need rest before World Cup'

Oscar insists that no risks will be taken with his fitness ahead of this summer's World Cup.

Oscar has insisted that he will not be taking any risks with his fitness ahead of the World Cup.

Chelsea's attacking midfielder has missed the previous two games due to a hip problem, and he admits that he will only play against Cardiff City next weekend if he is fully fit as he prepares for this summer's tournament with Brazil.

"We're aiming to try and play me in the final clash of the Premier League, but I have to take care for the World Cup," Oscar told Globo Sport.

"We still have two very important games in the Premier League because Chelsea can still be champions, but it is important I rest because the World Cup is here."

Brazil take on Croatia, Mexico and Cameroon in Group A at the World Cup.
