Brazil manager Luiz Felipe Scolari insists he will not take any risks with Chelsea defender David Luiz, who is a doubt for tomorrow's friendly against England with a calf injury.

Luiz suffered the injury in the dying minutes of Chelsea's Capital One Cup semi-final against Swansea on January 23 and has not played since.

Scolari decided to keep the 25-year-old in his squad for the game at Wembley despite the injury, but he will not play unless he passes a fitness test, the Brazil manager said today.

"Regarding David Luiz he will (have to) pass another exam with our physios, then we will decide whether he will play or not," Scolari told a press conference at Wembley this morning.

"We will not take any risks with him."
