With the Samba Boys already assured of their place in the last-16, Tite rung the changes and handed both their first starts of the tournament.

But it proved a costly night for the five-time winners, who suffered their first group stage defeat for 24 years and lost two key players.

According to Brazilian outlet Globo, the pair will play no further part in Qatar.

The duo underwent for scans on Saturday morning and were hit with the bad news when the results came back.

Jesus could miss around one month, which immediately puts him in a race against time to be fit for Arsenal’s Boxing Day clash with West Ham.

The report claims that he’s been playing through pain for his club, but not enough to stop him from going to the World Cup.
