Lucas Paquetá is in doubt about the World Cup in Qatar due to a shoulder injury. He was injured in the match against Southampton in the English Premier League. Manager David Moyes left out Paqueta against Liverpool on Wednesday.
Brazil coach Tite has arranged the strategy of keeping Paquetá in front. An injury to one of the team’s best weapons just a month before the World Cup has raised concerns among the five-time world champions. How serious is the 25-year-old West Ham star’s injury? “Paqueta’s injury is serious,” said Moyes. Whether he will be able to play in the World Cup or not, it is very difficult for me to say at the moment. I don’t know how long it will take him to recover.” The group was taken to another place. We are all very disappointed that Paqueta has been injured in this manner.”
Paquetá was outstanding for Lyon last season. West Ham signed the Brazil star for £51 million. Tite is currently busy trying to find a replacement for Paqueta at the World Cup if he is knocked out. He is scheduled to announce the preliminary squad for the World Cup on October 21. There is a lot of discussion about whether Paqueta’s name will be on that list or not. Earlier, the Brazil coach was worried about Richarlison. A hamstring injury against Everton in the EPL raised questions about his performance in the World Cup. However, Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte said Richarlison’s injury is not serious. He will recover if he gets enough rest. Richarlison will have no problem playing for Brazil in the World Cup.
