A grave news has come for the Brazil supporters as one of the key players of the side has been ruled out of the World Cup on the eve of their quarter-final clash against Belgium.
Football news: The player picked up an injury in the training ahead of the quarter-final game
Danilo, who is a defender and plays for the club Manchester City, has been ruled out from the rest of the tournament due to an injury in the ankle ligament.
Brazil confirmed the injury report and said that the player has got the injury while training with the team just 24 hours before the important clash with Roberto Martinez’s men.
Brazil, who are looking to win their first World Cup since 2002, will now have to play the entire tournament without the services of Danilo.
This came as a huge surprise for Tite, as Danilo was selected as a replacement for Dani Alves, who picked up an injury before the tournament, and was also the first choice right-back in Russia.
Fagner had played in place of Danilo in the previous game against Mexico and is set to lay the quarter-final game too.
Tite has some good news as Marcelo, who was previously injured with a back injury in the Group E win over Servia, is all set to return and will replace Filipe Luis in the squad.
