Brazil announced their 26-man squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup

Brazil have announced their 26-man squad for the 2022 Qatar World Cup, Newspremises reports.

Brazil, the country with most-time World Cup trophies, arrived in Qatar aiming for their sixth World Cup title.

Currently ranked number one in the FIFA rankings, Brazil is one of the favorites to lift the World Cup in Qatar.

Tite has announced the Brazil team for Qatar including many expected players.

Arsenal forwards Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli have been included in the 26-man squad.

However, there is no place for Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino in Brazil head coach Tite’s squad.

The 31-year-old has not featured for his country since the Copa America final in July 2021, missed the cut

Jesus’ place was in question following a nine-game goalless run for Arsenal, while club colleague Martinelli has been rewarded for his fine form with the Gunners having netted five goals and two assists already this season.

Another Gunner has missed out, though, with defender Gabriel overlooked in an attacking squad named by Tite.

Manchester United’s Antony and Tottenham’s Richarlison are among the forwards, with Neymar, Vinicius Junior, Raphinha and Rodrygo also included.

United midfielders Casemiro and Fred will be hoping to earn starting roles, with competition from Liverpool’s Fabinho, Newcastle’s Bruno Guimaraes and West Ham’s Lucas Paqueta.

Defensively could be where Brazil’s weaknesses lie, with 39-year-old former Barcelona full-back Dani Alves included alongside Chelsea’s 38-year-old Thiago Silva.

Liverpool’s Alisson and Manchester City’s Ederson will battle it out to be number one.
