There is news emerging from the Brazil camp that Bruno Guimaraes has picked up a thigh injury. Sport Witness has cited a report from Globo Esporte that Guimaraes is set to miss tomorrow’s friendly against Ghana with the injury.
Bruno trained normally on Monday and Tuesday but felt something yesterday. A subsequent scan picked up the injury. Though it does appear to have been caught early as Craig Hope is reporting the injury is minor and he may yet play for Brazil.

This is the second injury a Magpie has picked up on international duty. Earlier today, Alexander Isak withdrew from the Sweden squad with an unspecified injury. He was able to train by himself yesterday. However, the results of an evaluation by Sweden’s medical staff have ended his international break early.
Newcastle have already suffered a rash of injuries this season. Guimaraes just returned from a hamstring injury last weekend while Allan Saint-Maximin and Callum Wilson have yet to return from their hamstring problems.
The news on Wilson is encouraging as all signs indicate he’ll be available to play at Fulham after the break. Saint-Maximin has still not been cleared to return to training after suffering a setback recently.
