Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, commonly known as Tite, has chosen nine forwards in his squad, displaying his wide range of choices up front and indicating the high-pressing, offensive style of play we may expect from the World Cup’s most successful team at this year’s competition in Qatar.
Brazil Squad For World Cup 2022
There is little doubt that Alisson and Ederson are fighting for the No. 1 jersey, with Alisson emerging as Tite’s preference in previous matches after the couple split time in the Copa America 20211, where Weverton also made one start.
While the two experienced stoppers compete for the starting position, Weverton can expect to serve as the third goalie.

Casemiro and Fred of Manchester United are defending solid options, while the addition of Fabinho gives Brazil exposure to even another superb defender.
Bruno Guimaraes’ impressive play at Newcastle earned him a spot in the squad, despite Lucas Paqueta having a little more ingenuity on the ball. Bruno Guimaraes will have to fight for his place in the starting lineup. A significant development is Philippe Coutinho’s exclusion.

Eder Militao and Bremer are both regular starters at some of Europe’s top teams, but Thiago Silva and Marquinhos will count on their chances to start in the midfield.
Gabriel Magalhaes’ exclusion from the squad is a significant surprise, given how impressive Arsenal has been this season.
Alex Telles has also been added to Tite’s squad after logging more regular game time at Sevilla. In addition, Dani Alves has been defying the odds and officially joined the team.
|Eder Millitao||Real Madrid|
Brazil is one of the favorites partly due to its abundance of options.
Neymar, Vinicius Junior, Raphinha, Antony, and Richarlison are present. The list never seems to end. But, even then, players like Rodrygo and Gabriel Martinelli are not considered.
Indeed, many coaches will be jealous of Brazil’s attack in Qatar! However, the most well-known player to have been left off the list is perhaps Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino.

Best Brazil XI
Neymar, the team’s key player, should be in charge of the front line while Vinicius Junior and Raphinha burst down the sides in support.
Then expect the defensive expertise of Thiago Silva and Marquinhos, with Alex Sandro and Danilo coming in at full-back.
The center engine should be driven by Fred, Lucas, and Casemiro Paqueta.
In between the sticks, Alisson completes the starting XI.
Alisson; Danilo; Silva; Marquinhos; Alex Sandro; Fred; Casemir; Paqueta; Raphinha; Neymar; Vinicius Junior; Brazil XI (4-3-3).
