New Manchester United midfielder Fred was forced out of Brazil training with an ankle injury on Thursday.

Brazil are now based at Tottenham's training base prior to flying out to Russian Federation, and footage posted to Twitter by Luiz Felipe Castro showed Fred go to ground after a challenge from Real Madrid's Casemiro.

Lasmar is quoted by The Independent: "Today Fred had trauma in his ankle but it is too early to say anything about it".
