Slovakia defender Martin Skrtel has returned to normal training after injuring his ankle last week and is expected to be fit for the team's World Cup opener against New Zealand.
The Liverpool center back injured his right ankle Saturday in Slovakia's 3-0 win over Costa Rica in a warm-up match.
Team spokeswoman Marianna Cizmarova said the 25-year-old Skrtel practiced normally with the full squad Friday after having spent a few days training individually.
She said Skrtel's "medical results are OK" and he should be fit to play when Slovakia takes on New Zealand on Tuesday.
Paraguay and defending world champion Italy are also in Group F.
