Injured midfielder Josue dropped from Brazil squad

The Brazilian football confederation says defensive midfielder Josue has been cut from Brazil's squad for upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Argentina and Chile because of a right knee injury.
Coach Dunga is yet to announce a replacement for the player, who is expected to undergo arthroscopy surgery. He sustained the injury playing for his club side Wolfsburg in Germany.
Brazil, which leads the South American qualifying group, plays away to Argentina in Rosario on Sept. 5 and hosts Chile four days later in Salvador.
