Bad news, Dani Alves will not be in Russia. And it’s all the Seleção that could suffer. This Friday, the Brazilian selection has confirmed the absence of the right back for the World Cup, which will start on June 14th. Touched during the final of the Coupe de France against Les Herbiers, the Brazilian suffers from an injury to the anterior cruciate ligament of the right knee that requires surgery.
Selected 108 times with the selection to 5 World Cups, the right back was the Brazilian coach, Tite and the previous ones favourite for this position. He will be missed.
