Ronaldo fit for Brazil Cup opener

Real Madrid sent Ronaldo some old boots after his blister problems
Ronaldo will be fit for Brazil's World Cup opener against Croatia on 13 June, despite a mystery foot problem.

Before the friendly with New Zealand, Real Madrid sent Ronaldo some old boots as it was thought new ones were causing blisters and pain, but they persisted.

"The healing is almost complete. He won't have any more problems," said team doctor Jose Luis Runco.

"We are very comfortable. There is nobody with complaints and the players are all at the right level of fitness."

Japan and Australia are the other teams competing in Group F.

The 29-year-old, who was the top scorer at the 2002 finals, with eight goals, missed the end of the Spanish domestic season because of injury.
