Santiago: Chile goalkeeper and captain Claudio Bravo expects to recover quickly from a knee injury he had feared might jeopardise his World Cup hopes.

Bravo damaged a right knee ligament during his Spanish second division club Real Sociedad`s 2-0 defeat by Cordoba on Saturday.
"I think (I`ll need to rest) for three weeks," Bravo said on Monday.

It was feared he would need 45 days` rest before resuming training. The World Cup finals in South Africa start on June 11.
"I don`t want to rush into anything because the issue of the knee is very delicate ... I want to recover properly, feel good and then return to training," added the 26-year-old.

Chile face Honduras, Switzerland and favourites Spain in Group H.
