The Bafana star may be forced to miss the Brazil match, but he is working hard to try and recover in time.
The former Thanda Royal Zulu hitman man is doubtful for the match after picking up a slight thigh injury against Spain.
Parker is to undergo a fitness test today. Bafana coach Joel Santana will have a serious headache ahead of the game against his countrymen if Parker fails to make the starting line-up.
The coach already has to do without Macbeth Sibaya who will miss the match because of the two yellow cards he has picked up.
