MIAMI (AP) -- Steve Nash is going to work out with one of soccer's most famous clubs.

The Los Angeles Lakers guard will have a tryout Tuesday with Inter Milan, ahead of the team appearing in the United States for the Guinness International Champions Club tournament. The tournament pits eight club teams from around the world, with a winner to be crowned in Miami on Aug. 7.

Nash tells The Associated Press that he's working his way back to 100 percent physically after enduring an injury-filled year this past season with the Lakers. He says he fully expects to be nervous just sharing the field with Inter Milan for a practice.

Nash is a longtime soccer player and fan. He's part of the Vancouver Whitecaps ownership group.
