FIFA World Cup 2022: Brazil’s high hopes in Qatar equipped with a powerful attacking squad

The Brazil manager Tite unveiled his World Cup roster on November 7.

Gabriel Martinelli of Arsenal made the cut, while Roberto Firmino of Liverpool was surprisingly left off.

There are several famous faces in the roster, as twelve Premier League players are present.

Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus are included, but their teammate Gabriel Magalhes was omitted.

Antony of Manchester United, Alisson of Liverpool, and Ederson of Manchester City were all in the team.

Dani Alves, a 39-year-old right back, and Thiago Silva, a 38-year-old centre-back for Chelsea, will be attending their fourth World Cups, respectively.

The 25-year-old Flamengo forward Pedro instantly proposed to his fiancée Fernanda Nogueira upon receiving his call-up.

Head coach Tite has outlined an attacking approach for his side for the tournament, too. 

“There will be opportunities for all [Brazil’s forwards],” Tite said in an interview with The Associated Press. “Whoever is in will be deciding the match, all have to be prepared. Every match might require a different characteristic.”

Neymar and Marquinhos will be crucial for Brazil, as will Vinicius Jr. from Real Madrid.

Who will Brazil face in Qatar

Five-time world champions Brazil have been drawn into Group G of the 2022 World Cup along with Switzerland, Serbia and Cameroon.

This will be Brazil’s 22nd World Cup appearance, and the Seleço are the only side to have participated in every edition of the tournament.

Switzerland will compete in the World Cup for the twelfth time in their history, and they have advanced past the group stage on seven of their eleven previous appearances.

Three times since Serbia’s independence in 2006, the squad has qualified for the World Cup (2010, 2018 and 2022). In the previous two tournaments, they have never advanced past the group stage.

After failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, Cameroon is now competing in Qatar. Only once in seven previous World Cup appearances has the African nation advanced to the knockout stage (1990).

What state are Brazil in?

Brazil will enter the 2022 World Cup in Qatar as the favorite and highest-ranked team.

Twenty years after its last World Cup victory, the team will attempt to win the trophy for the sixth time at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Returning to the top of the Fifa world rankings, the Canarinha have lost just one game since the start of 2021, falling to Argentina in the Copa America final by a single goal.

Whoever enters will determine the outcome of the game, therefore everyone must be ready. Each match could demand a different quality.”

Four teams qualified from CONMEBOL, with Brazil finishing first with 14 victories and three ties. Neymar led the team in scoring with eight goals.

What is Brazil’s World Cup record?

Brazil are the most successful team in the tournament’s history. They’ve won the World Cup a record five times (1958, 1962, 1970, 1994, 2002) and have played in all 21 editions of the tournament so far. 

In Russia 2018, Brazil were tournament favourites but crashed out at the quarter-final stage following a 2-1 defeat to Belgium
