Among the world’s top five teams, Brazil will be looking to make history at the 2022 World Cup. They’re in prime shape to win a sixth World Cup title. The five-time champions have won seven straight matches and haven’t lost a game since losing to Argentina in the Copa America final.
The South American giants have been training in Italy for the past week. During the week, Tite announced his 26-man squad for the World Cup. Some of the players on the roster play for the top clubs in the world. They include several players from the Champions League, like Manchester United forward Antony and Fulham forward Aleksander Mitrovic.
Brazil’s first match will be against Serbia on November 24. Tite’s team is feeling positive heading into the World Cup. They’ve won five of their six games in qualifying for the tournament, including a 7-1 win over Germany in the semi-finals.
Neymar, the former Barcelona and PSG forward, is hoping to score at least one goal in the World Cup. He’s been one of Brazil’s top players for a decade, winning several league titles and capturing the European cup in 2019. He’ll look to end his career on a high. He’s also on track to surpass Pele’s record as Brazil’s all-time top goal scorer.
Brazil’s defence is strong and almost as good as their attacking line. Four centre backs were chosen in the squad, including Thiago Silva, Marquinhos, Guimaraes and Everton Ribeiro.
