I will be fit for World Cup, vows Shaqiri

Shaqiri has not featured for his club side Bayern Munich since their 1-0 defeat to Augsburg early last month due to a thigh injury.

However, the 22-year-old former Basel man is eyeing a comeback in the DFB-Pokal final against Borussia Dortmund later this month and is optimistic over his fitness ahead of the World Cup.

I cant make any promises about the World Cup, Shaqiri said in quotes reported by Swiss newspaper Blick.

I have enough time until the first game with the Swiss to arrive at 100 per cent. I will be fully fit.

We have a good, young, hungry team. Our goal is to get out of the group, but we can ensure a surprise. I am positive we will play a good World Cup.

My goal is to enter into team training next week and to prepare for the DFB-Pokal Final.

Switzerland have been drawn in Group E at the World Cup and face Ecuador in their opening game on June 15 before taking on France and Honduras.
