Spain captain and Real Madrid star Raul claimed onSaturday he is arriving in form just in time for the World Cup finals, due to begin on June 9.

"I am arriving in the best form I have ever done for a major tournament, whether it be the World Cup or the European Championships," said the 28-year-old 92-times capped star after training at his club.

Raul has had an inauspicious season scoring just five times in the league and not since October2005, although he was out injured for three months until his comeback in February.

"It is clear that since I came back from my injury I have not had much luck but (the goals) will come," insisted Raul, who has scored 42 goals for his country.
