PORTO SEGURO, Brazil (AP) — Germany's Thomas Mueller would like fans to know he's just fine after sustaining a nasty cut above his eye at the end of Saturday's draw against Ghana.

A smiling Mueller posted a picture of himself — complete with bandaged right eyebrow — on Twitter. He wrote: "Thanks for the many get-better wishes. Everything fine with me, even if I look a bit like a boxer."

Germany plays the United States on Thursday in the Group G finale, needing a draw to assure advancement.
