Superb depth

Since winning the 2018 World Cup, France has been making waves leading up to Qatar. They are the poster team when it comes to squad depth and while that’s still a solid case for the +250 favorites, the Brazilians are expected to give them a run for their money come the third week of November.

Known to produce some of the greatest soccer players the world has ever seen, it’s a common sight to see Brazilian players in every top club. The nation is poised to impose itself in the event and fight for the trophy after failing to lift it since 2002. After months of speculation as to who head coach Tite goes for in a sea of talented players, the finalized list was recently revealed to the public. Brazil 2022 FIFA World Cup lineup

Putting together a pool of experienced stars and young talent is what makes Brazil a spectacular sight. We get to see hardened players like +1,200 top goal-scorer Neymar, Thiago Silva, and Dani Alves link up with the future of the sport like Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo. Additionally, the exciting Gabriel Martinelli gets the green light despite rumors that his recent performances aren’t enough to get him a spot on the team. The fierce level of competition leaves out Gunners teammate Gabriel, who will have to watch from home.

Without further ado, here’s Brazil’s 26-man World Cup lineup:

Goalkeepers

  • Alisson Becker (Liverpool)
  • Ederson (Manchester City)
  • Weverton (Palmeiras)

Defenders

  • Dani Alves (Club Universidad Nacional)
  • Danilo (Juventus)
  • Alex Sandro (Juventus)
  • Alex Telles (Sevilla)
  • Gleison Bremer (Juventus)
  • Eder Militao (Real Madrid)
  • Marquinhos (Paris Saint-Germain)
  • Thiago Silva (Chelsea)

Midfielders

  • Casemiro (Manchester United)
  • Everton Ribeiro (Flamengo)
  • Bruno Guimaraes (Newcastle United)
  • Fabinho (Liverpool)
  • Fred (Manchester United)
  • Lucas Paqueta (West Ham United)

Forwards

  • Antony (Manchester United)
  • Gabriel Jesus (Arsenal)
  • Gabriel Martinelli (Arsenal)
  • Neymar Jr. (Paris Saint-Germain)
  • Pedro (Flamengo)
  • Raphinha (Barcelona)
  • Rodrygo (Real Madrid)
  • Richarlison (Tottenham)
  • Vinicius Jr. (Real Madrid)

You know Brazil’s depth is unparalleled when Roberto Firmino is out of the picture. The 31-year-old has been playing and showcasing some of his best games for years with eight goals and four assists in 18 games. More than that, the Liverpool forward has been a regular sight for the nation since the 2014 FIFA World Cup. However, the competition in Tite’s squad this year is nothing short of intense, leaving some of the stars behind.
