Alex Sandro injured for Brazil

Juventus full-back Alex Sandro has picked up a right thigh injury while on international duty with Brazil.

He went off during the 1-0 friendly defeat to Argentina on Friday and is therefore ruled out of the squad for their next test against South Korea on Tuesday.

According to Globoesporte, Juve medics have been informed of the injury, which is to the right adductor at the top of his thigh.

However, Alex Sandro will remain with the Selecao squad and continue treatment in their training camp in Abu Dhabi.

It’s more bad news for Juve, considering Miralem Pjanic went off for Bosnia and Herzegovina during a Euro 2020 qualifier against Italy on Friday.

He has been sent back to Turin early for medical tests, again for an adductor issue.
