Luiz needs nose job

Chelsea defender David Luiz requires surgery after suffering a broken nose playing for Brazil.

The 26-year-old incurred the injury in a collision with team-mate Thiago Silva during the Selecao's Confederations Cup defeat of Mexico.

Yes, my nose is broken, but that's part of the game.

Now I'll have to wait until the end of the competition and undergo surgery to fix it.
