By Chimezie Nebolisa

Brazilian and PSG defender Marquinhos missed training with the national team on Tuesday with an undisclosed injury.

With just nine days to go until Brazil's group game openeragainst Serbia, the defender underwent physiotherapy.

According to Brazil staff, there is no concern about his availability for the World Cup.

Only 14 players had participated in on-field training on Monday, as those who played for their clubs over the weekend worked in the gym.

On Tuesday, however, Tite ran intense drills working on keeping possession in tight spaces involving the entire squad, except Marquinhos, for a little over an hour.

Brazil open their World Cup Group G campaign against Serbia on Nov. 24 before facing Switzerland and Cameroon.
