No doubts for Neville

England stalwart Gary Neville is confident his hamstring injury will have cleared up in time for him to face Paraguay in the Group B opener on Saturday. The Manchester United star missed the friendly success against Jamaica at Old Trafford on Saturday because of the problem but was able to take part in training on Tuesday. "I'm happy with it. I think it's settled down," said the 31-year-old. "I'd have liked to have taken part in the Jamaica game but it wasn't to be. Hopefully I can train this week and be ready for Saturday. "It could be my last tournament. I'm aware time is against me, certainly to play another World Cup. "I want those caps that I have amassed to count for something, and they will only count for something if we win something. "We know how to lose. We know where the possible pitfalls could occur." David Beckham, Ashley Cole and John Terry were all able to take part in Tuesday's training session at Buhlertal, near the England squad's base in Baden-Baden, after picking up knocks in Saturday's 6-0 drubbing of the Reggae Boyz.
