This will be the twenty-second time that the Brazilian national team will be participating in FIFA World Cup 2022. It is expected that Brazil will face Serbia in their first match of the tournament on November 24, 2022, at the Lusail Iconic Stadium in Lusail, in the first game of the tournament. In the group stage of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Brazil will be paired with Serbia, Switzerland, and Cameroon.
Brazil’s World Cup 2022 squad announcement is just a few months away, and Tite moved closer to that final 26 after being selected for June’s friendly matches against South Korea and Japan.
Despite leaving Barcelona at the end of his contract, Dani Alves still hopes to play at the 2022 World Cup.
As one of the favorites to win the World Cup, Brazil will go to Qatar with an enviable roster of players like Neymar, Vinicius Junior, and Fabinho, along with two of the Premier League’s best goalkeepers, Alisson and Ederson in the back line.
FIFA World Cup 2022 Brazil Squad
How many players are Brazil allowed to take to the Fifa World Cup 2022?
For the first time at a major tournament, national managers were permitted to bring 26 players to the European Championship last summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while last year’s Copa America allowed managers to bring squads of 28 players, as a special measure brought in due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
When will the final Brazil Fifa World Cup 2022 squad be announced?
The 2022 World Cup will take place between the 21st of November and the 18th of December.
World Cup squads are usually announced around six weeks before the tournament begins, even though the next World Cup will not follow the traditional football calendar.
There is a possibility that this will change with club football being played closer to the start of the competition.
Who will make the final Brazil Fifa World Cup 2022 squad?
With the exception of injuries or bans, there are a few players that we expect to be a dead cert for Tite’s final team for the Fifa World Cup Brazil 2022.
The Brazilian striker Neymar, who is expected to become his country’s all-time record goalscorer within the next 12 months or so, is still the first name that appears on Tite’s team sheet even though he is set to overtake Pele very soon. The idea could be made that the center-back – and Neymar’s teammate at PSG(opens in a new tab) – Marquinhos is just as important as Neymar in securing a win for Brazil next summer.
Fabinho and Casemiro of Real Madrid will both be on the plane to Qatar in November 2022. It is likely that Alisson and Ederson will compete for the No.1 jersey, but neither goalkeeper will be under threat of losing his position in the squad.
It is worth mentioning that Gabriel Jesus has already won 50 caps for his country and is a favorite of Tite’s. There is only one doubt regarding Thiago Silva, however: at age 38, the Chelsea center-back will be out of his prime by the time the 2022 World Cup starts.
