Ramires has not travelled to Switzerland with the rest of the Brazil squad for Thursday's friendly in Geneva, instead staying behind in London for treatment on a thigh muscle injury.

The midfielder suffered a strained right adductor during the Blues' 2-0 Premier League win over West Ham on Sunday.

The Brazilian Football Confederation confirmed on their official website Ramires will be re-evaluated ahead of the game with Russia at Stamford Bridge on March 25th.

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has already had to rule out Paris Saint-Germain winger Lucas (ankle) and Paulinho (thigh) for the international friendlies.
