Veteran defender Dani Alves has been ruled out of Brazil's next two World Cup qualifiers because of a knee injury, the Brazilian Football Confederation (CBF) announced on Tuesday.

The former Barcelona, Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain player "will not be available in time for the matches" on June 4 and 8 against Ecuador and Paraguay, the CBF said in a statement. 

He will be replaced in Tite's squad by 22-year-old Emerson, on loan from Barcelona to Real Betis this season. 

Alves could yet return to the Selecao at the Copa America, which begins on June 13, if he is fit. 

Brazil lead the South American qualifiers, with 12 points having won all four of their games and conceded only two goals. 

Argentina are second with 10 points, followed by Ecuador with nine.
