SAO PAULO (AP) -- Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar says he arrives for the World Cup at home a lot more prepared than he was four years ago, when his mistake played a part in the team's elimination in South Africa.

Cesar says the difficulties he went through after the 2010 World Cup helped him become "a better professional" and made him "more focused" on his career.

Cesar admitted Tuesday that he took things for granted before the World Cup in South Africa, when he arrived considered the world's top goalkeeper.

The 34-year-old Cesar said he joined Toronto FC because it was the only team that wanted him, but said his preparations were not affected by playing in a less-traditional league. He called his time with Toronto "excellent" and said he is "100 percent" ready.
