Brazil's preparation for their World Cup Semi Final with Germany has suffered another setback with the news that Willian might have sustained a back injury in training over the weekend.

The Chelsea attacker, who has been tipped as a possible replacement for crocked star Neymar, allegedly hurt himself in a challenge by Hernanes at Brazil's headquarters in Teresopolis.

Head coach Luiz Felipe Scolari must decide how to replace his talisman Neymar, who will miss the rest of the tournament after breaking a bone in his back. 

And the candidates to do so include Willian, Hernanes or even Ramires as the hosts try to plot the downfall of one of the most consistent countries in the history of the competition.
