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.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
