Peralta back to full fitness in perfect time for World Cup

ARNOLD PERALTA, the Rangers defender, believes he will win his fight to be fit for the World Cup.

The Honduran midfielder missed his side's past two warm-up defeats to Turkey and Israel with a thigh strain.

Honduras have even called up a replacement player, Edder Delgado, who is now on standby after their medical staff assessed Peralta. But the 25-year-old is convinced he will prove his fitness ahead of the tournament this month.

"I have faith I will play at the World Cup," he said. "I have not played for a while because of medical advice, but I hope to return to full training today.

"I feel great and I know I will be good to play in Brazil."
