Alex to miss out on the Iran and Ukraine games

A day after scoring a cracker against Arsenal, Chelsea’s central defender, Alex, was forced out of the Brazil squad to face Iran and Ukraine later this month. The former Santos player has picked up a muscle problem in his right thigh and could be out for two weeks. This is the eighth time that the player has had to drop out of a Brazil squad through injury. Alex’s last appearance for his country was in March 2008 against Sweden in London. Brazil coach, Mano Menezes, has yet to call up a replacement.
