In Addition to Neymar and Danilo, the National Team Lost Anthony on Matchday Two in Qatar

The reserve is frequently used by Tite in the Brazilian team, including in the first round of the World Cup group stage, and Anthony will miss another training session on Saturday afternoon (26). This is the second consecutive activity in Doha without the presence of the Manchester United striker.

The Border Force stated in an official statement that he was “indisposed.” Anthony has shown severe flu-like symptoms in recent hours and cannot train. Yesterday he was cured with the hope that today he would be better to go out on the field, but he did not improve much and it was decided to let him rest in the team hotel.

The delegation stayed at the Westin Hotel and left the venue around 9:30 am (GMT) to train at the Grand Hamad Stadium, which is less than 5 kilometers away. Training will begin at 11:00 am and will be completely closed to the press, since Tite wants to keep his options to compensate for Danilo and Neymar’s injuries against Switzerland.
The team returns to the field on Monday, 1:00 p.m. (Brasilia time), for the second round of the World Cup.

With two of three workouts remaining, Anthony is doubtful. In his first game against Serbia, the 19th-seeded Brazilian came on for Neymar in the 35th minute of the second half to act as a winger at right back.
