World Cup: Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes delivers Brazil update after injury scare

Newcastle United midfielder Bruno Guimaraes trained as usual with the Brazil squad on Thursday after suffering a minor injury scare earlier in the week.

Guimaraes awkwardly dropped to the floor and limped off the pitch following an innocuous challenge from Liverpool midfielder Fabinho in training on Wednesday. The 25-year-old required treatment on the sidelines before later returning to the session.

And the Brazilian was feeling no ill-effects from the challenge the following day as he trained fully on Thursday at Brazil’s pre-tournament training camp in Turin. The Brazil squad will remain in Italy before flying out to Qatar for the World Cup on Sunday, November 20.
