Some of Germany's stalwart starters are battling injury woes after a lengthy club season, but so far they've been given the green light for all things World Cup.

Bayern Munich's Philipp Lahm and Manuel Neuer both suffered injuries in the club's 2-0 win over Borussia Dortmund in Saturday's German Cup final, but the Bundesliga winner claims that both players will be cleared to participate in World Cup camp, allaying fears of a worst-case scenario for Die Mannschaft.

Via the club's official English-language Twitter feed (and confirmed on the club's official website):
