Cesc Fabregas will be fit to play for Spain against Germany in the World Cup semi-final in Durban on Wednesday.

The Arsenal midfielder was examined by Spain's team doctor after falling heavily on his shoulder against Paraguay.

He and defender Carles Puyol, who suffered blurred vision after being hit in the face by the ball, have both been given the all-clear.

Barcelona centre-half Puyol is certain to start alongside Gerard Pique in a rematch of the Euro 2008 final.

Fabregas has yet to start a match in the tournament, but Spain looked a much better side in the quarter-final after he came on to replace Fernando Torres.
