Brazil says Alves replacement Fagner is fit for World Cup

Alves out of World Cup as Neymar nears return

The only one of those 15 not in Monday's final squad was Dani Alves, who has been ruled out of the tournament with a knee ligament injury.

Alves, 35, tore his ACL on Tuesday during Paris Saint-Germain's French Cup final victory against Les Herbiers.

Brazil have named their 23-man squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation, as manager Tite aims to lead the Selecao to glory for the sixth time.

PSG coach Unai Emery said he sympathised with Alves missing what would have been his last World Cup. "I have lived my dreams", he said.

"I knew from the moment I hit the ground that I was not going to be on the plane to Russian Federation", he wrote in The Players' Tribune. "In the changing room, the PSG doctors told me that we would have to wait until the next day to get the results of some tests, but I knew in my heart that it was over".

The post #WorldCupWith360nobs:Brazil Name 23-man Squad For The World Cup appeared first on 360Nobs.com. I don't want anybody to feel sorry for me.

Brazil face an opening game against Switzerland and will have to fill the void left by the defender who has amassed 107 global caps. I only cried one time, when I was by myself. Everyone came in celebrating with the Coupe de France trophy, and I never want to show any negative emotion around my team mates - if you know Dani Alves then you know I'm always one happy motherfucker - so I was smiling and trying to have fun.

The only country to win the World Cup five times, Brazil kick off their World Cup campaign against Switzerland on June 17 before playing Costa Rica and Serbia in Group E.
