Robinho has been ruled out of Brazil's 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ qualifier against Chile on Wednesday.

The Manchester City star has a bruise on his right leg according to the Brazil coaching staff and will join suspended duo Kaka and Luis Fabiano on the sidelines. There is also a doubt over Elano, who has a foot problem.

Brazil coach Dunga will be left with just two fit strikers in Nilmar and Adriano, in a squad now reduced to 17, against a Chile side who can qualify regardless of other results should they beat the Brazilians.
