Chelsea winger Willian called up to Brazil squad as Neymar replacement after PSG star is ruled out of Copa America with ankle injury

Willian Borges Da Silva

Chelsea winger Willian has been called up by Brazil manager Tite to replace Neymarahead of this month’s Copa America.

Neymar limped off the field during a pre-tournament friendly against Qatar on Wednesday after picking up an ankle injury.

The Brazil star, who has made 97 appearances for his country, had to be helped from the pitch by medical staff during his side’s 2-0 victory. He later revealed nasty swelling on his right foot, which led to his withdrawal from the Brazil set-up.

One of the most talented footballers of our generation facing another injury again. Walked down in TEARS before Copa America on the doors. Get back soon Neymar I wish you speedy recovery, can’t see this again and again.
