World Cup

Due to injuries, Brazil’s Jesus and Telles will miss the World Cup.

The Brazil squad confirmed on Saturday that Gabriel Jesus and Alex Telles will not be able to participate in the remainder of the World Cup due to knee problems.

The South American team said the pair, who were hurt during Friday’s 1-0 defeat to Cameroon, both underwent tests on Saturday morning that “confirmed their injuries and the impossibility of them recovering for the rest of the World Cup in Qatar”.

Due to the injuries to Telles’ fellow full-backs Danilo and Alex Sandro, Brazil will have issues defending against South Korea on Monday.

Although the five-time world champions have an abundance of attacking potential, Arsenal forward Jesus played in each of Brazil’s three Group G matches.

Neymar, the star forward who injured his right ankle during Brazil’s opening 2-0 victory over Serbia, will play again in Qatar, according to coach Tite.

Neymar was spotted at the Lusail Stadium with his teammates, walking on the pitch without a limp, raising hopes that he would play against South Korea.
