BRAZIL DEFENDER DANILO has been ruled out for the rest of the World Cup due to an ankle injury.

The Manchester City full-back has featured just once for Tite’s men in Russia, playing in his team’s draw with Switzerland in their opening game.

But a left ankle injury means Danilo, 26, will miss the rest of the tournament, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) confirmed late on Thursday.

“Danilo suffered a left ankle injury and will not have time to recover until the end of the cup,” the CBF said in a statement.

“In conversation with the commission, he will remain with the team in Russia. We cheer for your recovery.”

Brazil are favourites to win the World Cup ahead of their quarter-final against Belgium in Kazan this evening.
