MELBOURNE - Injury-prone playmaker Harry Kewell is battling to secure a place in Australia's World Cup squad but believes he has overcome the worst of a groin strain that has sidelined him for three months.

The former Liverpool winger, who has not played since December, expects to return for Turkish club Galatasaray this weekend but has only a handful of games in which to prove his fitness before the kickoff on June 11.

"This injury has come at a bad time for me so I've got to work hard to try to secure myself," Kewell said yesterday. - Reuters
