Hard work for Ronaldo

Share |

Brazilian striker Ronaldo is having a special training plan for him in order to recover his best form. Carlos Alberto Parreira plans to field him in the world champions' opening game against Croatia on June 13, even though the striker has not played a game since early April.

The Real Madrid player, plagued by minor injuries all season at Real Madrid, trained with the rest of the Brazil team on Thursday without feeling any ill-effects.

"One week will be enough for me to reach the same form as the others," Ronaldo claims. "I feel ok, I'm starting some physical work which is going to be tough but which is fundamental in preparing for the first encounter.

"These training sessions will be tough but it's the moment to suffer and to withstand it."

Ronaldo's last match was on April 8 against Real Sociedad when he scored before limping off with a injury to the back of his right thigh.

"It's always nice to be with Brazil, I know perfectly well what it means to represent Brazil," Ronaldo admits.

"I've been off for almost a month and a half, so this is a pre-season for me".
