Luis Fabiano out for Brazil

BY foxsports • February 26, 2010

Brazil striker Luis Fabiano will not play in next week's friendly against Ireland because of a pulled pectoral muscle.

The Brazil football federation says on its Web site Friday that it has yet to decide if a replacement will be named. The statement didn't say how the Sevilla forward was hurt.

Fabiano didn't travel to Moscow this week for his Spanish team's 1-1 draw with CSKA in the Champions League.

In December, Fabiano hurt his ankle and was out for several weeks.

Robinho, Adriano and Nilmar are the three remaining strikers in the Brazil squad for the Ireland game on Tuesday in London.
