Brazil loses Danilo to World Cup practice injury

Brazil right back Danilo is out of the World Cup after injuring his ankle in training.

The Brazilian soccer federation said the Manchester City player suffered a ligament injury in his left ankle during the team’s training session in Kazan, Russia, on Thursday, a day before Brazil plays Belgium in the quarterfinals.

Danilo played in Brazil’s opener against Switzerland but missed the matches against Costa Rica and Serbia because of a right hip injury sustained in training.

He recovered and was available for the 2-0 win against Mexico in the round of 16, but coach Tite kept his replacement, Fagner, in the starting lineup.
