Danilo and Alex Sandro suffered fitness problems in the Brazil camp this World Cup, but they could soon be back in action for their country.
The Juventus duo are key players for the Selecao side and have continued to impress when playing for them.
However, their injuries have denied them more caps and Brazil have already sent Gabriel Jesus and Alex Telles home with injuries.
Danilo and Sandro are being monitored daily to see if they can be fit enough to play soon and both players seem to be making good progress.
On their progress, Thiago Silva said via Tuttomercatoweb:
“We are very clear: I confess yesterday before training that it was a very painful moment when we saw our teammates Telles and Gabriel Jesus who will no longer be able to play any match of the World Cup tournament. The sadness is great.
“We can only help them by doing our part in the games we have time to play. I hope they recover as soon as possible. Then we hope to be able to rely on those who are about to be available again. It’s nice to see Danilo doing well, Neymar on the pitch and Alex Sandro improving. They can give us so much.”
Juve FC says
Sandro and Danilo are two key men for us and they are also important members of the Brazil squad.
We wish them a speedy recovery so they can help their country in the competition, but we also want them to return to Turin fit enough to contribute to our performances when football resumes.
