2018 FIFA World Cup | Manchester United’s Fred suffers injury in Brazil training
With only five days to go, Brazil suffered an injury scare during their pre-World Cup camp here when midfielder Fred left a training session early with an ankle problem.
National team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said Manchester United’s new boy Fred suffered “ankle trauma” after collapsing under a sliding tackle from teammate Casemiro, reports Xinhua news agency.
“Tomorrow we will see what happens and decide if we need to carry out any exams but at the moment it’s too early to say anything,” Lasmar told reporters on Thursday.

TENNIS: MARIA SHARAPOVA TAKES A SHOT AT SERENA WILLIAMS AFTER FRENCH LOSS
Maria Sharapova left the French Open without much of a fight, but had enough left in the tank to deliver a parting shot at Serena Williams.
Following her 70-minute defeat to Garbine Muguruza 6-2, 6-1 in the quarterfinals at Roland Garros on Wednesday, the Russian spent a portion of her press conference addressing criticism made by her rival about her autobiography, in which Williams claimed the book was “100 percent hearsay.”
In “Unstoppable” — Sharapova’s autobiography — the 31-year-old said her rivalry with Williams started after 2004 Wimbledon, where Sharapova won her first Grand Slam by defeating Williams in straight sets.
