Who has Tite selected for 2022 World Cup squad?

Unsurprisingly, Brazil is beyond loaded in attack, with so many options that one (or two) of Neymar, Vinicius Jr, Gabriel Jesus, Antony, Raphinha, Richarlison and Gabriel Martinelli will see very few, if any, minutes at all in Qatar. That's seven very worthy players for three (maybe four) spots in the team. There will be more rotation this World Cup than any one before due to the condensed schedule of games, but Brazil's stars of the future will likely take a backseat before their time comes in 2026.

Goalkeepers: Alisson, Ederson, Weverton
