Sad for Liverpool attacking midfielder, Roberto Firmino, who has been pulled out of Brazil’s world cup qualifiers next month due to injury.

Firmino landed awkwardly in Liverpool’s League Cup match against Carlisle United and his place was in doubt.

CBF has now confirmed that Firmino will be absent and has been replaces by Santos forward Ricardo Oliveira.

“Ricardo Oliveira, the top goalscorer in the Brazilian league with 17 goals, was called up by Brazil coach Dunga,” the CBF’s statement said.

“The Santos striker will take the place of Liverpool striker Firmino, who was released because of injury.”

Dunga’s Brazil travel to Chile for their World Cup qualifier on October 8 and return home to host Venezuela five days later.
