Marquez still focusing on 100% fitness with NYRB

Rafael Marquez is still determined to get himself to full fitness ahead of the 2012 MLS playoffs.

The Mexican star and his New York Red Bull teammates are on the verge of competing in the finals of North America's domestic league with just five more regular season matches to be played and Marquez, who recently returned from Achilles and calf injuries, is focusing on getting himself right so he can give everything to the team.

"I'm still coming out of the injury. I don't think I'm at 100 percent yet but I am feeling real good," he said.

"Throughout the years of my career I've learned to make decisions that focus on the health, to be able to perform well. In this case, it proved right, and I'm happy to be able to provide what I'm providing the team at this point."
