Germany defender Mats Hummels plays down fears that he could miss the rest of the World Cup after picking up an injury in Monday's 4-0 win over Portugal.

Germany defender Mats Hummels has played down fears that he could miss the rest of the World Cup after picking up an injury in Monday's 4-0 win over Portugal.

The Borussia Dortmund centre-back, who scored the second goal of the match, was substituted in the second half of the Group G clash. However, Hummels has insisted that he "will be fine in just a few days".

"I have been struck on the thigh. That's why a replacement came on," he told reporters. "There's always a worry that the injury could be worse than first thought but, with a bit of luck, I will be fine in just a few days."

Germany return to action against Ghana on Sunday evening.

Thomas Muller celebrates scoring his hattrick for Germany in their World Cup opening game against Portugal on June 16, 2014.
