Riveros Ready For Wearside

Riveros Ready For Wearside

Steve Bruce has admitted it has been frustrating as Sunderland have had to wait for Riveros to join up with the squad in England.

Bruce joked: 'We are still looking for Riveros to come through the door. We don't know where the hell his passport is - somewhere between Paraguay and New York!

'But we expect him to be in by Wednesday or Thursday.'

Riveros, 28, has been training in South America since he joined Sunderland on a bosman transfer in June.

Bruce is looking forward to seeing the midfielder in action and hopes to include him with the first team as soon as he can.

Bruce added: 'They need to get their passport stamped and visa changed, and with having the World Cup in the middle of it didn't help - especially with them getting to the quarter final. If they'd got knocked out in the early rounds, it would have helped!'
