Ramires: Will not feature for Brazil in friendly with Italy

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.
