Brazil manager Dorival Junior says Alisson Becker will not be part of the squad for the friendlies against England and Spain in March, which suggests he is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

“In terms of possible call-ups, all the names mentioned are important players and have some prominence in their teams.

“They would indeed be on a pre-list,” Dorival Junior said to TNT Sports.

“In particular, some players who had slightly more serious injuries, such as Alisson, Matheus Cunha, Joao Pedro and even Neymar, are totally removed from any possibility at this moment.”

The Selecao coach’s comments suggest Alisson may miss important matches for the Anfield side in their challenge for the Premier League and Champions League crowns.

After the cup final, they will take on Southampton, Nottingham Forest, fellow title challengers Manchester City and Merseyside rivals Everton before the international period.

Injury Update

The Reds’ boss, Jurgen Klopp, who may also be without Mohamed Salah and Darwin Nunez for the upcoming matches, expressed much concern.

“So, not available is obviously Ali, that’s a muscle injury where we don’t know exactly how long it takes but definitely not for foreseeable time coming back.”
