Germany midfielder Sami Khedira missed training on Sunday with a thigh injury but should be fit to return to action on Monday, team spokesman Harald Stenger said.

Khedira, who would be expected to start the World Cup semi-final against Spain on Wednesday, picked up the knock in Saturday`s 4-0 drubbing of Argentina and was substituted in the 77th minute.

Stenger described the injury as "the normal kind of knock", adding that Khedira would resume jogging on Monday.

Back-up striker Cacau received treatment after Sunday`s session for an unspecified problem.
