Oscar scored in the 90th minute of Brazil's shocking 7-1 loss to Germany in the World Cup semifinal on Tuesday.

Germany led 1-0 after 11 minutes and then 5-0 after 30 minutes. There was nothing the Brazilian could do and Oscar's late goal almost just added salt to the wound, coming just seconds before the final whistle.

Oscar set up Neymar's 29th minute goal, then scored a goal himself one minute into stoppage time in the second half during Brazil's 3-1 win over Croatia on Thursday in the opening match of the World Cup.

There was some speculation that Oscar would be replaced by Willian in the starting XI, but he held onto his spot and nearly had two goals when all was said and done. Up next for Brazil is Mexico on Tuesday.

Oscar has not featured in Chelsea's last three matches due to an ongoing hip injury, Sky Sports reports. "I warmed up [against Atletico] but Mourinho knew that I could hardly play. Maybe I will not play the next game [against Norwich] because I could suffer a more serious injury to my hip and he knows it. We're aiming to try and play me in the final clash of the Premier League [against Cardiff] but I have to take care for the World Cup."

With Chelsea's Premier League title chances all but gone, while already booking a spot in next year's Champions League, there is really no reason to rush Oscar back. The Brazilian midfielder has eight goals and two assists in 32 appearances this season.

Oscar scored in the 42nd and 66th minutes of Chelsea's 6-0 demolition of Arsenal on Saturday.

Oscar's brace ended a long scoring drought that saw him go goalless in the Premier League since New Year's Day. He now has eight goals and two assists in league play this season, although his scoring droughts make him an unreliable fantasy option.

Oscar may be the target of a £40 million transfer bid from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Chelsea would have to decide to sell the midfielder that they bought for £25 million in the summer of 2012. Oscar still has three years remaining on his current contract with Chelsea.

Oscar came on two minutes into extra time in the second half of Chelsea's Champions League round of 16 first leg against Galatasaray on Wednesday.

Oscar suffered an ankle injury last weekend, although it is unclear if he did not play much in Turkey due to the injury, or because of a tactical decision by manager Jose Mourinho. It's not great news either way, although he should be fit for Saturday's Premier League match against Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Oscar (ankle) is in the squad for Chelsea's Champions League match at Galatasaray on Wednesday, Goal.com reports.

Oscar came off at halftime of last weekend's Premier League match against Everton due to an ankle injury, but it's a nice boost that he could face the Turkish giants. He will likely not play all 90, but he could start with David Luiz (muscle injury) and John Obi Mikel (knock) both questionable, not to mention Nemanja Matic sitting out since he's cup-tied to Benfica.

Oscar was subbed off at halftime during Saturday's match against Everton after picking up an undisclosed injury. Manager Jose Mourinho said "Oscar was injured. he said he could cope with the pain, there was no risk to make it worse, but he couldn't."

If Chelsea weren't heading to Turkey for a Champions League tie with Galatasaray on Wednesday, it's possible that they could have let Oscar keep going. They will need him back, along with David Luiz, for the Champions League tie, with Nemanja Matic ineligible to play.
