Keeper fitness boost for Brazil

09 June 2010 12:33
Brazil coach Carlos Dunga has allayed fears that a back injury could keep goalkeeper Julio Cesar out of their opening World Cup matches. The highly-rated Internazionale shot-stopper has been sidelined since straining his lower back during a warm-up game against Zimbabwe last week. However, Dunga expects Cesar to be fit for when Brazil begin their Group G campaign against North Korea on June 15. "Julio Cesar will recover for our first game," he said. "He is undergoing treatment and he is expected to train with the team this week."
