Brazilian Striker Hulk a Doubt For Game Against Mexico After Limping Out Of Training

hulk Brazilian Striker Hulk a Doubt For Game Against Mexico After Limping Out Of Training

Brazilian manager Luiz Felipe Scolari may have to impose a change to Brazil’s starting line-up against Mexico this Tuesday after his striker Hulk limped out of training on Sunday.

Hulk, whose real name is Givanildo Vieira de Souza, was seen limping away after scoring a goal. After receiving treatment, he was deemed unable to continue and now leaves Scolari with a selection dilemma.

Twenty seven year old Hulk has been a key player for Brazil’s team, being deployed on the right side. He is given the role to cut in whenever and deliver his fierce strikes. His performance against Croatia in the World Cup opening game was lackluster however, being subbed for Shakhtar Doneskt star Bernard, 21. The youngster will be looking to start after replacing the Zenit St Petersburg star.

Another player who will be pushing to start is Chelsea winger Willian. The 25 year old, who has featured for Brazil seven times, had a very impressive season for Chelsea, reaching the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League. He played a key part in the team, being deployed to both attack and defense. He can be trusted in a role to do both jobs very well.

Although Luiz Scolari has options to replace Hulk if needed, it certainly is an unfortunate problem to have so soon in the tournament.
