Ferdinand fit and ready for Croatia test

Defender Rio Ferdinand has been declared fit and is available for England's crucial World Cup qualifier with Croatia.

The England vice-captain returned to training on Monday after missing the 2-0 win over Andorra in Barcelona at the weekend with a neck problem.

And head coach Fabio Capello is happy that the Manchester United star will be 100% ready for the clash with Slaven Bilic's side.

Capello said: "Rio is fit for the game and it is good to have him available because he is a leader and an important player."

Ferdinand will replace Joleon Lescott and his experience of the big occasion will be crucial with England aware of the need to avoid a repeat of the 2-0 defeat they suffered in a Euro 2008 qualifier in the same stadium two years ago.

Capello declared a clean bill of health for the rest of his squad.
