The Brazilian squad has undergone a change in the group that will compete in this month’s World Cup qualifiers. The Brazilian Federation confirmed on Tuesday evening that Casemiro’s steering wheel had been cut. Douglas Luiz, from Aston Villa, will be tasked with replacing the Real Madrid player.
With the presentation scheduled for this morning, Casemiro did not join the group due to a dental problem. Brazil’s national team doctor, Rodrigo Lasmar, gave details of the situation.
– We kept in touch with Real Madrid and the player. He said, “We have received from the club the tests and the medical report that shows an infectious process in the wisdom tooth, with an indication of absolute comfort and the impossibility of training for the next five days.”
Douglas Luiz is another English footballer who is part of the national team. On October 2, a decree came into effect freeing Brazilians transiting through or residing in the United Kingdom from self-quarantine.
Brazil will take to the pitch on Thursday, against Venezuela, in the World Cup qualifiers, at 20:30 (GMT).
