Roberto Firmino Withdrawn From Brazil Squad


The 29.5 million summer signing faces spell on the sidelines after back injury.


Roberto Firmino is facing a spell on the sidelines for Liverpool after he was withdrawn from Brazil’s squad for next month’s World Cup qualifiers.

Firmino has undergone scans on a back injury after falling awkwardly during the Reds’ Capital One Cup third round tie against Carlisle United on Wednesday night.

The 23-year-old left the field in obvious discomfort before half-time, with Brendan Rodgers’ side going on to progress 3-2 on penalties after a 1-1 draw with the League Two side.

The extent of the injury, however, is still unknown.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers will hold his pre-match press conference today ahead of their Premier League fixture against Aston Villa on Saturday. Let us see if Rodgers would give us a clearer picture as to how much time the Brazilian faces on the sidelines.
