Fred injured in Brazil training

London, June 8: Brazil suffered an injury scare during their pre-World Cup camp here when midfielder Fred left a training session early with an ankle problem.

National team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said Fred suffered “ankle trauma” after collapsing under a sliding tackle from teammate Casemiro.

“Tomorrow we will see what happens and decide if we need to carry out any exams but at the moment it’s too early to say anything,” Lasmar told reporters on Thursday. IANS
