Chelsea’s Oscar did not make it into Brazil’s copa America squad. The midfielder failed to make the cut due to an injury.
Coach Dunga confirmed that Oscar was left out due to injury.
“He had an injury in his last training session with Chelsea,” Dunga confirmed.
“We talked to Mourinho and with the Chelsea doctors. His period of recovery will be somewhat prolonged, so he will not be in the best condition. We think he will be better prepared for the World Cup qualifiers, which begin soon after the Copa America.”
