Brazil Coach To Play Filipe Luis Ahead Of Marcelo Against Mexico

Brazil is going out of its way to defend its World Cup preparations and show its players' injuries can't be blamed on excessive training.

Team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar announced late Saturday that Danilo, the right back who plays for Manchester City could play in the round-of-16 match on Monday at Samara Stadium.

"Marcelo has a medical history with this kind of injury", he said.

Brazil have received a boost ahead of their FIFA World Cup pre-quarterfinal against Mexico with news that defender Marcelo is expected to play after overcoming a back problem. Maybe the mattress in the hotel was softer than usual.

The team doctor of Brazil commented on the injury to Marcelo in match against Serbia at the world Cup in 2018. "He said he locked up when he was leaving the pitch" Selecao manager Tite said.
