Carlo Cudicini is delighted to be back in action, admitting: "Everything is perfect at the moment."

The goalkeeper returned with a 45-minute stint at Bournemouth on July 10 before playing the full match against San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday.

He spent the early part of the summer working overtime with coach Tony Parks at Spurs Lodge to complete his rehabilitation after eight months out with wrist and pelvic injuries.

Tony has been delighted with his form in training and matches - a feeling shared by Carlo.

"I feel fine," he said. "Of course, after eight months out, there was a bit of emotion at going back to the pitch, but it was a nice feeling to be back and having the chance to get minutes on the pitch. That's what pre-season's all about.

"We split the rehabilitation into two parts, the first was in the summer and Parksy did a great job with the physio team and the doctor and now it's the second part, hard training and going into matches.

"At the moment, fingers crossed, everything is going well."

Carlo made two fine saves in the first half against the Earthquakes and has yet to concede a goal in pre-season.

He expects another tough test from another MLS side on Thursday when we play the first of two matches in the Barclays New York Challenge against the New York Red Bulls.

"These are never friendly matches," he added. "The MLS players maybe have hopes of coming to Europe one day, so it's a chance for them to show their ability.

"They are also in the middle of their season, so they will be prepared. I'm sure it will be tough again."
