England-Brazil: Chelsea star David Luiz a doubt with calf injury

Action Images

Chelsea defender David Luiz is a doubt for Brazil's friendly with England tomorrow due to the calf injury that has sidelined him for the previous three fixtures.

The 25-year-old last featured as a second-half substitute during the Blues' 0-0 League Cup draw at Swansea on January 23.

However, the Seleção star ended the game limping and hasn't appeared for Rafa Benitez's side since, missing Chelsea's draws with Reading and Brentford, as well as Saturday's 3-2 defeat at Newcastle.

The former Benfica centre-back is awaiting confirmation on the extent of his injury and could miss out on lining up alongside club team-mates Oscar and Ramires against England at Wembley on Wednesday.

Luiz told Globoesporte: "I didn't play for three matches because my calf still hurts.

"Today I'm going through some exams with [Brazil's physician Jose] Runco, he asked me.

"I'm training at 100% already and I hope to play for the Seleção."
