JOHANNESBURG - Brazil midfielder Elano
has recovered from an ankle knock and is fit to face Chile in
Monday's World Cup second-round match, a team spokesman said on
Elano, who scored in each of Brazil's opening two games,
took a full part in training and spokesman Rodrigo Paiva told
reporters he would be available for Monday's game.
Robinho, who like Elano missed the last group game against
Portugal on Friday with muscular pains, also featured in the
session and should play against the Chileans.
Midfielders Felipe Melo and Julio Baptista are doubtful,
although the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) said on
their website that both had "improved
considerably" since being injured against Portugal.
Felipe Melo twisted an ankle and was substituted before
half time while Julio Baptista hurt his knee in the same game.
