IANS logoIANS 24-05-2017

The 26-year-old tore a hamstring in Santos' 1-0 victory over Coritiba in Brazil's Serie A championship last Saturday, reports Xinhua news agency.

Brazil coach Tite did not name a replacement for Lima and will take a squad of 23 players to Australia, the CBF said in a statement on Tuesday.

Brazil will meet Argentina on June 9 at the Melbourne Cricket Club followed by a clash against Australia at the same venue four days later.

Brazil are currently on top of the FIFA world rankings, with Argentina second and Australia 50th.
