Inter to recall Julio Cesar

It's reported Inter have decided to recall Julio Cesar from his vacation early for the Italian Super Cup in Beijing.

The Nerazzurri have a shortage of shot-stoppers for the big August 6 game against Milan.

Emiliano Viviano is out for 5-7 months after snapping the anterior cruciate ligament in his knee, while Luca Castellazzi was stretchered off with a head injury during the friendly with Galatasaray.

Inter were considering the option of bringing back Julio Cesar for the big game and it's reported they settled on that course of action.

The Brazilian goalkeeper was set to remain on holiday after the Copa America, but Coach Gian Piero Gasperini and director Marco Branca believe he's necessary for the Italian Super Cup.

The other South Americans (Esteban Cambiasso, Lucio, Douglas Maicon and Javier Zanetti) will not return until after their August 10 friendly against Germany.
