The Brazil national team suffered an injury scare during Sunday’s training session with forward Hulk leaving training early and leaving questions about his fitness ahead of the team’s second match of the 2014 World Cup.
According to the Associated Press, Hulk left the session after just 15 minutes after some discomfort in his left leg.
The good news is that Hulk was not walking with a noticeable limp.
However, Hulk was seen looking frustrated and unhappy with the injury, which sent him to the bench for the remainder of the team’s training session.
Brazil is currently preparing for Tuesday’s match against Mexico.
The host nation and El Tri are currently tied atop the Group A table, and kick-off for Tuesday’s match is set for 3 p.m. ET at Estádio Castelão in Fortaleza.
We will have to continue monitoring Hulk’s status and wait for an update from the Brazilian Football Confederation, who has yet to speak out about the injury Hulk suffered in training.
In Brazil’s World Cup opener, Hulk was replaced by Bernard in the second half.
