Dani Alves expected to be fit for World Cup despite knee injury


Perform Update: 9 May 2018 19:45h CEST Paris Saint-Germain have confirmed Dani Alves suffered a knee injury in the Coupe de France final - but the defender should still be fit to play for Brazil at the World Cup. The experienced full-back was hurt in the 80th minute of his side's 2-0 victory over Les Herbiers on Tuesday and, despite initially playing on, was eventually replaced by Thomas Meunier. Despite the problem, Dani Alves was still able to join his team-mates for the presentation ceremony at the Stade de France after PSG completed their third domestic treble in the past four seasons. There were initial fears the 35-year-old could miss out on being part of Brazil's squad for Russia, but the club are hopeful the player will not require surgery. "His [Dani Alves'] condition requires a minimum of three weeks of care before reassessing the need for surgical treatment," a statement from PSG said on Wednesday.
