Chilean goalkeeper Herrera to participate in Brazil 2014 despite trial

SANTIAGO, May 23 (Xinhua) -- Chilean goalkeeper Johnny Herrera will have no trouble to play in Brazil 2014 World Cup although he is in a legal case.

A court in Chile on Friday ordered Herrera to report to a police station in Santiato every 30 days while it is determined whether he breached a driving ban. The goalkeeper was sentenced to 41 days in jail in September 2013 and a two-year ban from driving after he was arrested for drunk driving.

Herrera, goalkeeper of Chilean club Universidad de Chile, was caught driving a vehicle while he was making his way to a training session of the national team in December.

This was not the first sentence received by Herrera. In December 2009, he was sentenced for involuntary manslaughter for running over a 22-year-old woman who died. His driver license was revoked for two years.

Herrera is considered the natural substitute of Claudio Bravo, first choice goalkeeper and captain of the national team.
