Ready to rumble: Eduardo is fully fit and looking forward to his Arsenal first team return
Eduardo has declared himself fit for first team action after nearly twelve months on the sidelines.
The Brazilian-born Croatian suffered an horrific leg break and ankle dislocation at Birmingham last season which placed his career in doubt.
But the 25-year-old striker has battled back to full fitness and is ready to help Arsenal as they bid for Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup glory.
'I feel much stronger than I have and I am very happy now,' said Eduardo, who arrived at the north London club from Dinamo Zagreb in July 2007.
'I think I am ready for the first team, but you would have to ask the boss.
'I feel very well and I am training hard every day. Of course I want to come back quick and strong. Now, every game for me is a big step.
'In my head and everything I am ready. I am just waiting for my chance.'
