Twenty years since their last World Cup glory, Brazil will be looking to pick up the trophy for a sixth time at World Cup 2022 in Qatar. Top of the Fifa world rankings, the Canarinha have lost just one game since the turn of 2021; by one goal to Argentina in the Copa America final.

Four teams qualified from CONMEBOL and Brazil finished top of the pile with 14 wins and three draws. Neymar finished as their top scorer with eight goals.

Tite succeeded Dunga as Brazil Head Coach in June 2016. Under the 60-year-old’s stewardship, Brazil reached the World Cup quarter-finals in 2018 before winning the Copa America in 2019 and finishing runners-up last year. There’s no doubt he will be looking to add the World Cup to his honours list this year because he’s announced that he’s stepping down as Brazil head coach after the tournament.

Brazil World Cup 2022 squad

World Cup squads are usually announced around six weeks before the World Cup starts. This year the World Cup will run from Nov 21-Dec 18.
