Roma star Juan withdraws from Brazil squad

AS Roma defender Juan has withdrawn from Brazil's squad for their World Cup qualifiers against Bolivia and Venezuela this month due to a thigh injury.

Brazil coach Dunga would not call up a replacement, the Brazilian Football Confederation said on its website on Friday.

Brazil, who have already qualified for the 2010 finals in South Africa, are away to Bolivia in La Paz on October 11 and at home to Venezuela in Campo Grande three days later.

Bolivia are out of the running but Venezuela could still reach a playoff against a CONCACAF team.
