Tite has announced his squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, making the bold decision to leave out a player who has been in brilliant form for Premier League-leaders Arsenal
The Selecao, the most successful team in the tournament’s history, are aiming to add their sixth crown and their first since 2002. They kick off their group-stage campaign against Serbia on 24 November before taking on Switzerland and Cameroon.
Brazil are the bookmakers’ favourites to emerge victorious in Qatar and they will have a wealth of attacking talent to call on, including some of the biggest stars in the Premier League. Despite being omitted from the squad for September’s international fixtures, Arsenal forwards Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli will board the plane to the Middle East.
