Mueller ended the Group G match in Fortaleza flat on his back with blood gushing from the cut following a clash of heads with Ghana central defender John Boye.

The Black Stars defender also suffered a should injury but Muller says he has recovered from the setback.

"Thanks for all the wishes for a speedy recovery," Mueller wrote on Twitter on Monday.

"Everything is fine with me even though I might look a bit like a boxer now," he added next to picture of him smiling with the stitches.

Assistant coach Hansi Flick said on Monday he would be ready for Thursday's final group match against the United States.

    What tackle by Boye? You mean the tackle where you flew into a better positioned Boye? In what way is that a tackle? Looked like stupidity on Mueller's side to me.
