Rio de Janeiro: Uruguay striker Diego Forlan could return to Internacional`s starting line-up for the Brazilian club`s fixture against Pelotas in the Campeonato Gaucho on Saturday.

Forlan was used as a 70th-minute substitute in Uruguay`s 1-3 defeat against Spain in Doha Wednesday and Internacional coach Dunga believes the 33-year-old can recover from the 14-hour flight in time for the match in Novo Hamburgo.

"He only played 20 minutes and the trip isn`t all that tiring," Dunga said during a press conference Thursday.

"We will talk to him to see how he feels. If he feels good he is free to play," he said.
