Julio Cesar: QPR goalkeeper is on his way back from injury

Cesar, 34, signed for QPR from Inter Milan in 2012 and had been linked with a move away from the club all summer.

But, after having surgery on a finger injury, Cesar is prepared to do whatever it takes to regain full fitness.

Cesar said: "It increases my motivation, when you have to face adversity, as in my case now, it always increases the motivation. You want to return earlier, do everything correctly.

"I am calm, I will do what the doctors ask so that I can catch balls again."

It has been reported that Cesar will be out of action for between six to eight weeks, meaning that he will miss Brazil's upcoming games against Zambia and South Korea.

Cesar though refuses to be downbeat about his lay-off.

"It's normal to have a mental block in the beginning, everyone goes through that situation," added Cesar.

"I'm very calm and confident regarding my return, I'll be back stronger than I was."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
