Chelsea's Oscar faces club v country World Cup dilemma

Oscar wants to help in Chelsea's title push but is aware of making worse a hip injury that could force him to miss the World Cup. The 22-year-old Brazil international has not played in the Blues' past three matches.

"I'm not playing because I felt a pain due to an injury to the abductor," Oscar told Globo Sport. "In the last game against Liverpool I was not called on.

"Yes, I warmed up against Atletico but Mourinho knew that I could hardly play. Maybe I will not play the next game because I could get a more serious abductor injury and he knows it. I have to take care for the World Cup."
