Luiz suffered the injury in the dying minutes of Chelsea's Capital One Cup semi-final against Swansea on January 23 and has not played since.

Scolari decided to keep the 25-year-old in his squad for the game at Wembley despite the injury, but he will not play unless he passes a fitness test, the Brazil manager said on Tuesday.

"Regarding David Luiz he will (have to) pass another exam with our physios, then we will decide whether he will play or not," Scolari told a press conference at Wembley on Tuesday morning.

"We will not take any risks with him."
