Brazil's bid for the 2022 World Cup

2022-11-21 Author: Roman Titov

Brazil’s World Cup 2022 bid is by far the best in terms of the number of superstar names. Tite did not take one of the best strikers of the Premier League, Roberto Firmino, and the representative of the leader of the Arsenal Premier League, Gabriel, to the national team. Local fans have several complaints about the coach on request, but this does not diminish the strength of the squad. All the leaders of the application of the Brazilian national team of recent years are in place, their injuries have bypassed them. In Qatar, Neymar and company are going in the status of obvious favorites.

Brazil World Cup bid

Brazil 2022 World Cup bid: Goalkeepers

Goalkeepers: Alisson (Liverpool), Ederson (Manchester City), Waverton (Palmeiras).

Here, Tite has an incredible selection of two of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League in recent seasons. Alisson and Ederson have long been competing in absentia in clubs and in person in the national team. But Tite still trusts Alisson more, who will definitely be at the start. Ederson was not lucky to be in such a situation, Waverton is known to Brazilian fans, but he is unlikely to play at the World Cup with such competition.

Brazil 2022 World Cup bid: defenders

Centre-backs: Eder Militao (Real Madrid), Marquinhos (PSG), Thiago Silva (Chelsea), Bremer (Juventus).

Right back: Danilo (Juventus), Dani Alves (Pumas).

Left-backs: Alex Sandro (Juventus), Alex Telles (Sevilla).

In the center of defense, team Brazil has no problems. The Militao-Marquinhos pair looks unshakable, both are leaders of the top clubs and are playing at a high level for the 2nd season in a row. As a substitute, there is a promising Juventus newcomer Bremer and an experienced uncle Thiago Silva, who can give a lot of advice. But Tite has problems with the flanks, his choice of wingers is especially criticized by fans. If Danilo on the right and Sandro on the left have no competitors, then the choice of a 39-year-old veteran in poor form Dani Alves looks like a gift from the coach. Sandro, Telles and Danilo have long ceased to play as tops, their careers are on the decline, but Pentacampeons have no better edgers.

France squad for 2022 World Cup: midfielders

Midfielders: Fabinho (Liverpool), Lucas Paqueta (West Ham), Casemiro, Fred (both Manchester United), Bruno Guimaraes (Newcastle), Everton Ribeiro (Flamengo).

There are no problems in midfield in the Brazilians’ bid for the World Cup in Qatar. In the support zone, two monsters of recent seasons, Casemiro and Fabinho, with an excellent first pass, closer to the attack, there are leading seasons Bruno Guimaraes and Lucas Paqueta. For a long time at the disposal of the coach was not such a powerful center, capable of both defending and helping ahead at an excellent level. Fred and Everton will be able to strengthen the team from the bench.

Brazil forwards

Forwards: Neymar (PSG), Gabriel Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus (both Arsenal), Vinicius Junior, Rodrigo (both Real Madrid), Anthony (Manchester United), Rafinha Diaz (Barcelona), Richarlison ( Tottenham), Pedro Abreu (Flamengo).

The attack is the main fear of all rivals of the Brazilian national team at the Fifa World Cup 2022 in Qatar. What is only a bunch of Neymar and Vinicius, which will definitely be at the start. Multimillion-dollar Martinelli, Antoni and Rafinha play on the flanks, Jesus, leading with Arsenal in the Premier League and Richarlison, can play in the center of the attack. Rodrigo is Ancelotti’s longtime joker at Real Madrid. The main question is how to place them all on the field and turn incredible power into a result. In attack, a maximum of 3 places, the competition will be prohibitive.
