Another player who has given his country an injury scare in the build-up to this summer’s extravangza.

Neuer damaged ligaments in his right shoulder in Bayern’s German Cup final win over Borussia Dortmund in May.

But six hours of treatment a day left the shot-stopper well ahead of schedule in making his return.

It’s a huge boost for Germany because he’s probably the best keeper on the planet.
