Antony pictured training with Brazil ahead of the World Cup


Manchester United winger Anthony was pictured training with Brazil ahead of the World Cup.

Antoine is part of the Brazil team with Casemiro, Fred and Alex Telles, who will travel to Qatar.

He hasn’t played for Manchester United since being substituted in the win over Sheriff Tiraspol last month.

Although his World Cup dream has never been in doubt, he will need to prove his fitness if he is to start for Brazil in Qatar, having missed United’s last five games entirely.

Antony pictured training with Brazil

Antony was pictured training with the Brazil squad as they put themselves through their paces at a training camp in Turin, Italy.

He will be on the flight to Qatar in the next few days before their first match next Thursday against Serbia (24/11).

Antony’s Manchester United team-mate Fred was also pictured arriving in Turin after leaving England to join fellow internationals.

Fred was an unused substitute in United’s win over Fulham on Sunday, with team-mate Casemiro playing all 90 minutes.

Brazil are among the favorites to win the tournament and Fred hopes to make an impact for his country this time.

He was part of the squad at the 2018 World Cup but didn’t play a single minute at the tournament after suffering an ankle injury just a week before the final.

Dan still wonders what would have happened if United had kept Juan Veron…
