Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari confirms that David Luiz will only feature for Brazil against England if he passes a fitness test.

Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has insisted that he won't use David Luiz during Brazil's friendly match against England tomorrow night unless he is fully fit.

The Chelsea defender has missed his side's last three matches because of a calf injury.

As a result, Scolari has confirmed that he will only be under consideration for a place in the match squad if he is able to pass a fitness test with the medical staff.

"Regarding David Luiz he will [have to] pass another exam with our physios, then we will decide whether he will play or not. We will not take any risks with him," the coach told reporters.

Luiz, 25, has made 16 appearances at senior international level.
