Willian ruled out of Copa America final 🇧🇷

Brazil winger Willian has been ruled out of Sunday's Copa America final against Peru due to a muscle injury, his side said in a statement on Thursday.

Willian, who will remain with the team at their training base ahead of the final, scored Brazil's final goal in their 5-0 drubbing of Peru in the group stage and scored in their penalty shootout victory over Paraguay in the quarterfinals.

He was brought on for winger Everton at half-time in the Selecao's 2-0 win over Argentina in the last four but tests on Wednesday revealed he had sustained a muscle injury.
