With his sister’s kidnapping crisis now capped by a happy ending, Brazil striker Ricardo Oliveira says he can go back to worrying about getting himself fit for their upcoming friendlies against Chile and Ghana.

The AC Milan man is trying to come back from a knee injury that halted his debut Serie A campaign.

“Right now things in my personal life have improved indescribably, and I just thank God that I can do my job without worrying about things other than what happens on the pitch,” said Oliveira. “It was a nightmare of a time.”

    I’m very happy for him. His luck is finally turning good.

    I hope Brazil can turn it around. They were a bloody big disapointment in this past world cup.
