Kaka downplays his injuries

2010-05-18 19:24

Sao Paulo - Kaka is confident he will be in great physical condition when Brazil begins its bid to win a sixth World Cup title in South Africa.

Kaka arrived in Brazil on Tuesday saying the injuries that kept him from playing several matches with Real Madrid this season will not bother him in next month's World Cup.

The playmaker says he will be "100%" fit by the time the competition begins on June 11.

A former FIFA player of the year, Kaka endured a groin problem and a thigh injury through parts of season and failed to play at his best.

Brazil striker Luis Fabiano also says the muscle injury that is keeping him from playing with Sevilla in the Copa del Rey final on Wednesday should not sideline him at the World Cup.
