Cesar is widely considered to be one of the world's finest goalkeepers

Inter Milan goalkeeper Júlio Cesar will be fit for Brazil’s opening World Cup fixture says manager Dunga.

Cesar, widely considered one of the world’s finest stoppers, picked up a lumbar strain in Brazil’s win over Zimbabwe in Harare last Wednesday.

But Dunga insists the 30-year-old will be ready in time to face North Korea in Johannesburg on Tuesday.

“Júlio Cesar will recover for our first game,” he said.

“He is undergoing treatment and he is expected to train with the team this week.”

Spurs ‘keeper Heurelho Gomes stood in for Tuesday’s 5-1 win over Tunisia ending Cesar’s record run of 26 consecutive appearances for his country.
