Tite is getting closer to the announcement of the Brazil World Cup 2022 squad. He has used his team for the last friendlies before the tournament to test out new faces and cast doubts about certain players’ places.
Brazil will face Tunisia and Ghana on September 23rd and 27th, respectively. Both sides will compete in the World Cup 2022, which takes place in November.
Brazil Squad for FIFA World Cup 2022
Arsenal’s Brazilian trio, Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Magalhaes, and Gabriel Martinelli, are all missing from this squad. Aston Villa’s Philippe Coutinho and Dani Alves (veteran defender, Club Universidad Nacional) also miss out.
Although it is expected that Gabriel Jesus will be selected, Gabriel Magalhaes and Gabriel Magalhaes are not sure. Martinelli’s absence casts doubt on his place.
It is not a good sign for Coutinho, 30, and Dan Alves, 39, respectively.
Antony, a new Manchester United signing, cuts. Richarlison, a Tottenham newcomer, also makes it.
Brazil will travel to Qatar as one of the World Cup favorites. With an impressive roster of players, including Neymar and Vinicius Junior, and two of the Premier League’s top goalkeepers, Alisson and Ederson, Brazil will be there.

What number of players is Brazil allowed to play in the 2022 World Cup?
As a particular measure, national managers were permitted to bring 26 players to the European Championship last summer. This was due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year’s Copa America allowed 28 players.
It has been revealed that 26-player teams will return to Qatar for the World Cup. This is an increase from the 23-man groups.
When will final Brazil 2022 World Cup team be announced?
The 2022 World Cup will be held from 21 November to 18 December 2022.
The World Cup’s next staging is an exception to the traditional football calendar. However, World Cup squads are typically announced six weeks before the tournament begins.
This could change if club football is played closer to the tournament’s start date.
Who will be the last Brazil 2022 World Cup team?
We expect a few players to be certified for Tite’s final Brazil 2022 World Cup team, barring injuries or bans.
Tite still has Neymar as the first name on his team sheet. He is expected to surpass Pele and become the country’s record goalscorer in the next 12 months. One could argue that Brazil’s success next summer will depend on Marquinhos, the centrecenter-backeymar’s teammate at PSG (opens in new tab).
Real Madrid midfielder Casemiro will be flying to Qatar with his Liverpool (opens in a new window) counterpart Fabinho. Alisson and Ederson will be fighting for the No.1 jersey, but neither goalkeeper’s spot in the squad is at risk.
Gabriel Jesus is Tite’s favorite player and has won 50 caps for his country. Thiago Silva’s only problem is his age. The Chelsea (opens in new window) center-back will turn 38 when the 2022 World Cup begins.
