Alisson and Filipe Luis Passed Fit For Copa América Final

06/07/2019 6:17 PM

Brazil goalkeeper Alisson and left-back Filipe Luís have been passed fit for Sunday’s Copa América final clash with Peru in the Maracanã.

Alisson had been struggling with back pain following the semi-final victory over Argentina on Tuesday night, but trained as normal on Friday.

Filipe Luís missed the semi-final and was replaced by Alex Sandro after complaining of a thigh muscle strain, he too trained normally on Friday.

Fernandinho is also fit having missed some of the group stages with a knee problem, but he will likely be on the bench. Richarlison has recovered from the mumps.

The only confirmed injury absentee is Willian, who has a thigh muscle strain that keeps him out of Sunday’s final.

Tite must choose between Filipe Luís and Alex Sandro at left-back, but is likely to continue with Gabriel Jesus on the right of the attack and Firmino at centre-forward.
