Gabriel Jesus knee injury
Brazil’s forward Gabriel Jesus and defender Alex Telles have both been ruled out of the rest of the FIFA World Cup after picking up injuries in their final Group G game against Cameroon, the country’s football association said on Saturday.
Telles was substituted in the 54th minute of Brazil’s 1-0 defeat by the African side, with Jesus leaving the pitch 10 mintues later.
According to Fabrizio Romano, Gabriel Jesus will miss the rest of the FIFA World Cup 2022 tournament because of having pain in his knee. The report adds that the Arsenal striker could be out of action until January.
This will not only be a huge blow for Brazil but also for the Gunners, who currently sit at the top of the Premier League table with 37 points, five points clear of second-placed Manchester City.
As for Alex Telles, Brazilian outlet Ge Globo has reported that the 29-year-old will take no further part in the FIFA World Cup 2022 tournament because of pain in his knee.
While an injury to Jesus will most likely be a massive blow for Brazil, they do have several options that are more than capable of providing a similar level of quality to him.
As for Telles, a replacement option may be more difficult to find with Juventus left-back Alex Sandro also injured.
