Ronaldo won't play whole match against Croatia
font size    

Brazils national football team striker Ronaldo said today that he probably won't play the whole of Brazils first match in the World Cup.

The match against Croatia will be held today at the Berlin Olympic stadium.

The player admitted he is not in his best form and said he will ask to be replaced during the match if he feels too tired.

"I think I have already improved a lot my physical condition, but I don't know if I will be able to play the whole 90 minutes," said the striker.

Ronaldo didn't participate in two of the teams practices in Germany because of a blister problem in his heels and a fever caused by flu. But he guarantees he will improve his overall endurance as Brazil advances in the competition.

Meanwhile, Brazils national football team captain Cafu withdrew the forgery charges that fell on him yesterday. The Brazilian defender, his wife and Roma Football Clubs President Franco Sensi were accused by an Italian judge of forging documents to acquire an Italian Passport in 1999, when Cafu started playing in Italy.

The player could go to prison for nine months because of the charges but an Italian court declared today that all the involved were innocent.
