Dani Alves suffered a knee injury during Paris Saint-Germain's 2-0 win over Les Herbiers in the French Cup final in midweek.

A spokesman from the Brazil national side revealed to ESPN earlier in the week that the player did suffer ligament damage.

The Brazilian Football Federation have now confirmed that the 35-year-old will now miss the entire tournament.

A statement released on Friday read: "The patient underwent close examination and confirmed the initial diagnosis of anterior cruciate ligament injury, which will require surgical treatment.

"The technical team of the Brazilian National Team wishes Daniel Alves a prompt recovery so that his technique and leadership is back for the Amarelinha as soon as possible."

Brazil need to prepare a right winger ASAP coz with Alves available,there was no need since he provides every striker running up n den the line.I know he is gonna lv a gap on the right flank.the team WL now change the dimension completely.

It's a blow to him, however considering the Brazilian pool of stars, his absence will not be noticed at the world cup.
