Brazil name squad for 2018 World Cup

Alves injury

The 35-year-old suffered the injury playing in Tuesday's French Cup final against Les Herbiers, coming off four minutes from the end as PSG beat the minnows 2-0.

Danilo, who plays for Manchester City and and Fagner are most likely to replace the injured Dani Alves in Selecao's World Cup squad.

The South American media outlet say they received an update from one of their reporters based in Paris - who has been in contact with PSG.

On Friday, Brazil's medical staff said Alves would need surgery, confirming the defender's worst fears less than a month before football's flagship tournament begins.

"This is the final stage of his recovery", said Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar. I knew from the moment that I hit the ground that I was not going to be on the plane to Russian Federation for the World Cup. In the dressing room doctors told me we would have to wait until the next day to get the results of some tests, but in my heart I knew it was over. "I am really sorry for him", said Emery. "I have lived my dreams", he said. "I don't consider myself a veteran".

Brazil have named their 23-man squad for the 2018 World Cup, with Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar included.

Brazil face an opening game against Switzerland and will have to fill the void left by the defender who has amassed 107 worldwide caps.

It means Bayern Munich winger Douglas Costa, City goalkeeper Ederson and in-demand Shakhtar midfielder Fred have earned their places, as well as Fagner, Taison, Gremio's Pedro Geromel, Atletico Madrid full-back Filipe Luis and Corinthians keeper Cassio.

Five-time champions, Brazil will contest Group E with Costa Rica, Serbia and Switzerland.
