Ederson, Alisson Becker of Liverpool, and Lucas Perri of Botafago were the other two goalkeepers in Fernando Diniz’s starting lineup.
But now that he’s hurt his foot during Man City’s 4–4 tie with Chelsea on Sunday, he has to withdraw.
Subsequently, Brazil called up Bento, a goalkeeper from Atletico Paranaense, to replace Ederson for the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Argentina and Colombia.
Ederson, who has emerged as Brazil’s first-choice goalkeeper in the current qualifying campaign, will be devastated by the injury situation.
The 30-year-old started in each of their four World Cup qualifying matches for 2026, but Alisson is soon to take his spot.
Apart from Ederson, Diniz is also without Casemiro, Neymar, and Richarlison, while Gabriel Jesus, an attacker for Arsenal, is a serious question.
Jesus’ hamstring issue has kept him out of Arsenal’s last five games. Before a decision is reached regarding his availability, Brazil’s medical experts will evaluate him.
Pep Guardiola is hoping that Ederson’s injury is not too serious because the Citizens are scheduled to play Liverpool on November 25.
The Man City manager is already dealing with a number of injury problems, one of which is Nathan Ake, an international player from the Netherlands.
The defender was forced to withdraw from the Dutch team for their final two Euro 2024 qualifying matches, missing Sunday’s draw with Chelsea.
With John Stones sustaining a muscular injury after being substituted in the team’s most recent 3-0 Champions League victory over Young Boys, Ake exacerbates Man City’s defensive injury worries.
Due to a hamstring injury, Guardiola is still missing long-term absentee Kevin De Bruyne, and Sergio Gomez is now out due to an ankle injury.
