Brazil striker Antony is reported to have missed Brazil training due to an illness.
Brazil has announced that they are monitoring the situation and fitness of the player ahead of their match on Monday against Switzerland.
Tite’s Brazil has already lost Neymar and Danilo through injury after their first game of the World Cup, but the favorites are now sweating for the fitness of Antony or they will be another man short for their game against Switzerland on Monday.
It’s unclear how serious the illness is, but Tite will be hoping he will be able to call on the 22-year-old on Monday. He was a second-half substitute in their 2#0 win over Serbia on Thursday, playing 10 minutes after being introduced for Neymar.
Striker Neymar, Midfielder Lucas Paqueta, and goalkeeper Alisson are reported to have also missed training sessions.
Meanwhile, Brazil has refused to rule Neymar out of the World Cup, but he is not expected to play again until the knock-out rounds after twisting his ankle in the Serbia match.
