Robinho is reportedly stopped from entering the USA for Brazil's friendly for Honduras due to visa complications.

AC Milan forward Robinho has reportedly experienced visa complications while trying to enter the USA to join his Brazil teammates for a friendly in Miami.

Brazil are due to face Honduras on Saturday as their preparations continue for next summer's World Cup finals on home soil, with Robinho earning a recall to Luiz Felipe Scolari's squad for the match.

Robinho was expected in the USA today but has initially been denied entry into the country by immigration officials, according to Tuttosport.

The Turin-based publication also claims that Chelsea playmaker Willian has suffered similar difficulties, with both players waiting for a further update due later this evening.

The 29-year-old has worked his way back into Massimiliano Allegri's plans at the San Siro this season, scoring three times in 15 appearances.
