Ronaldo is expected to be in good physical condition when Brazil begins it pre-World Cup training this week, the team's doctor said Monday. ''Ronaldo is not injured anymore,'' Dr. Jose Luis Runco said. ''He has been practicing normally for the past two weeks. He is in good condition, just as the other players.'' Ronaldo had several injuries in the beginning of the year, and he scored only five goals in Real Madrid's first 19 matches. His latest injury, a muscle ailment picked up during Spanish league play, kept him sidelined for most of April. ''Ronaldo is fine now,'' Runco said after Brazil arrived in the lakeside resort town for its two-week training camp. ''He will be able to practice normally.'' All Brazilian players will undergo routine physical examinations on Tuesday and Wednesday. The team's first practice session is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. Runco said he expects Brazil's players to be in better shape this year than before the 2002 World Cup in South Korea and Japan, when Brazil won its fifth title. (AP)
