The potent Boca Juniors striker Marcelo Canete will be fit to play against the Wellington Phoenix in the Capital, on Friday.

Canete had been under an injury cloud since taking an elbow to the face from a referee after scoring the only goal in their game against Melbourne Victory last weekend.

The Boca coach, Claudio Borghi says the amount of blood made the knock appear to be worse than it was.

About 10-thousand tickets have so far been sold for Friday's game.
