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):

As for Bastian Schweinsteiger, who missed the cup final with a knee injury, he has assured all that his place in World Cup camp is not in jeopardy either. So for U.S. fans hoping for a watered down German team to take the field in Group G play, it's back to the voodoo dolls.
