The Brazilian FA announced on Tuesday that defender Alex Sandro would miss Brazil’s last World Cup Group G encounter against Cameroon on Friday due to a hip injury sustained during the 1-0 victory over Switzerland.
Alex Sandro will not play for Brazil against Cameroon in their next match, according to a statement from team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar. “Alex Sandro was withdrawn in the 86th minute with a pain and medical examinations done on Tuesday indicated a muscle damage in his left hip,” the statement said.
Brazil suffered even another loss since they were already missing right back Danilo and striker Neymar. Due to ankle injuries sustained in the first game’s 2-0 victory over Serbia, the two will not go past the group round.
Lasmar stated that both are still receiving treatment and working to be well in time for the knockout rounds. Neymar didn’t go to the stadium with his teammates on Monday because of a minor temperature, which Lasmar claimed was under control and wasn’t interfering with the way his ankle condition was being treated.
Lucas Paqueta, a midfielder who missed Saturday’s training session and was replaced midway through Brazil’s match against Switzerland, was among the players who were out sick on Sunday. Brazil advanced to the knockout rounds with a game remaining when midfielder Casemiro scored a game-winning goal in injury time to give Brazil a 1-0 victory. Casemiro served as an example for his attackers on how to score goals.
Individuals who did not start against the Swiss took part in a brief practice session led by Coach Tite on Tuesday. As Brazil might play their round of 16 encounter on Monday if they finish first in Group G, he is anticipated to change up his lineup for the Cameroon game.
