Brazil World Cup 2022 squad and preview: Tite announces final team – and there no room for Firmino

The Brazil World Cup 2022 squad has been announced – and the huge information is that Liverpool ahead Roberto Firmino doesn`t make the crew.

Brazil hasn`t taken on European competition because of March 2019 pleasant towards the Czech Republic. The closing time they went this long without assembly a rival from Europe turned into earlier than the 1954 World Cup.

The anomaly has introduced questions at almost each press convention and, for a while, served to downplay the crew`s record-breaking qualifying form. The Selecao gained 14 of 17 games (the conflict towards Argentina that turned into deserted for COVID-19 shenanigans turned into in the long run canceled), racking up forty dreams and conceding simply five.

But such is the pleasure around Brazil now, the temper has appreciably altered. Essentially, the fixture listing quirk in Europes loss. They don't have any concept approximately whats coming for them.

For a maximum of the street to the Qatar World Cup 2022, Brazil resembled a practical outfit that lacked their conventional aptitude and aura and relied an excessive amount of on Neymar`s eight-purpose virtuosity. That modified round mid-2021 with the upward push of gamers who supervisor Tite refers to as “piranhas rapids” (speedy little legs). Rafinha, Antony, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo and Gabriel Martinelli have introduced a slippery new dynamic to the Selecao, turning it right into an aspect that – for perhaps the primary time because 2006 – fanatics surely accept as true with can win the World Cup.

Add to that a backline shaped of Alisson (with Ederson a luxurious reserve), Thiago Silva, and Marquinhos that has been nearly impregnable during the last 4 years, and all of sudden the hype appears greater than justifiable.

Brazil is some distance higher organized this year. In June 2016, Tite took the fee of a crew halfway thru qualifying that almost didn’t make it to Russia 2018 at all, after which struggled after accidents to Neymar, Dani Alves, and Renato Augusto. Things are extraordinary now. With greater tactical options, the five-time international champions have even resembled Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City, the full-backs stepping into significant midfield once they have possession.

To win a primary World Cup because 2002, Brazil will wish to enjoy the familiarity introduced through a great glug of the squad plying their change withinside the Premier League together. Otherwise, they may be matching their longest-ever drought (1970 to 1994) through going at least 24 years among trophy lifts – and that doesn`t endure wondering approximately.
