Rio de Janeiro, May 30 (Xinhua) Brazilian football star Adriano said he would rather come in the second half than be in Flamengo’s starting line-up against Atletico Paranaense as he returns to the Brazilian championship at the Maracana stadium Sunday.
“To tell the truth, I am not ready to play a full game right now. By entering in the second half, I will be able to give my 100 percent,” said Adriano Friday.

Depressed after leaving Italian club Internazionale of Milan, Adriano, 27, decided to remain in Brazil after the national team’s qualifier against Peru, April 1.
