Oscar admits World Cup injury fears

Chelsea midfielder Oscar has revealed that he is struggling with a hip injury which kept him out of the side’s Champions League semi-final exit and playing could keep him out of the World Cup, Sky Sports reports.

The 22-year-old missed the first leg against Atletico Madrid as well as the win against Liverpool between the two ties.


The Brazilian has admitted that he is likely to miss the final two games of Chelsea’s Premier League season as he fears playing would aggravate his injury for the World Cup.


"I'm not playing because I felt a pain due to an injury to my hip, so, in the last game against Liverpool, I was not called on," said Oscar.


"I warmed up [against Atletico], but (Jose) Mourinho knew that I could hardly play.


"Maybe I will not play the next game (against Norwich) because I could suffer a more serious injury to my hip and he knows it.”


The side will hope to have Oscar back for the final Premier League game with the title still in their sights, but for him the World Cup is his priority right now.


The Blues were previously thought to be out of the title chase but with their victory over Liverpool last weekend there is still a chance they can make up for their European disappointment with a domestic trophy.


"We're aiming to try and play me in the final clash of the Premier League (Cardiff) but I have to take care for the World Cup,” added Oscar.


"We still have two very important games in the Premier League because Chelsea can still be champions, but it is important I rest because the World Cup is here."
