Schweinsteiger 'to be fit for Portugal'

Germany midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is expected to be fit for his country's opening World Cup game against Portugal in Salvador on Monday.

Germany determined to stop Ronaldo

Schweinsteiger -- who sparked concerns that he could miss the World Cup after suffering a knee injury at the pre-tournament training camp last month -- was airlifted to hospital to undergo a scan needed for insurance purposes.

The remote location of Germany's Brazil camp means it cannot be reached by road, so Schweinsteiger had to undergo his journey to hospital by air.

All players who had registered injuries prior to arriving in Brazil needed to undergo checkups, and Schweinsteiger's Bayern Munich teammates Manuel Neuer and Philipp Lahm had completed theirs before leaving Germany.

But he may have to settle for a place on the bench against the Portuguese after Germany coach Joachim Low confirmed that Lahm would be used in central midfield, where he is likely to be partnered by Sami Khedira.
