Brazil’s Sandro To Miss Cameroon Match

By Chimezie Nebolisa

Brazil FA has announced that left back Alex Sandro will miss their last Group G match against Cameroon on Friday with a hip injury suffered in the 1-0 win over Switzerland.

In a statement, the team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said: "Alex Sandro was substituted in the 86th minute with a discomfort and medical exams made on Tuesday identified a muscle injury in his left hip, ruling him out of Brazil's next game against Cameroon."

The development is another setback for Brazil team who were already without forward Neymar and right back Danilo. The pair have been ruled out of the group stage by ankle injuries suffered in the opening 2-0 win over Serbia.
