Czech Republic's record scorer will be back for the World Cup

Jan Koller has given word to Czech Republic's coach Karel Bruckner that he is recovering from tearning ligaments in his left knee during a match last September. He has been training with Dortmund and hopes to play in the team's final two matches of the season.

Koller has scored 40 goals in his 66 international appearances, making him a very dangerous striker. Bruckner calls his absence "the biggest loss."

If he does make a come back as planned, first games would be in early May. Koller would have about a month to get match fit before Czech's first World Cup game against the US.
