By tradition, the head coach of the Brazil national football team did not start slowing down and a month before the tournament announced the squad of 23 footballers who will perform on the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia. The list covers the 23 players:
Goalkeepers: Alisson (Roma), Ederson (Manchester City), Cassio (Corinthians).
Defenders: Danilo (Manchester City), Fagner (Corinthians), Thiago Silva (PSG), Miranda (Inter), Marquinhos (PSG), Pedro Geromel (Gremio), Marcelo (Real), Filipe Luis (Atletico).
Midfielders: Casemiro (Real), Paulinho (Barcelona), Fernandinho (Manchester City), Renato Augusto (Beijing Guoan), Coutinho (Barcelona), Fred (Shakhtar), Willian (Chelsea).
Forwards: Neymar (PSG), Roberto Firmino (Liverpool), Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City), Douglas Costa (Juventus), Taison (Shakhtar).
The hot topic is that the most expensive football player Neymar, despite his injury, has been included in this list. Thus, there is a chance that Neymar will play on the World Cup in Russia.
The defender Dani Alves has become the main loss of the Brazil national team. The most titled world football player got injured in the match for the Cup of France (Coupe de France) and he won't be able to take part in the World Cup in Russia.
Traditionally, Brazil is rich in football talents. It is impossible to include all worthy football players in the FIFA official squad. This time, the head coach Tite has rightly left Hulk, David Luiz and Oscar beyond the World Cup, because under his management the Brazil national team masterfully won the qualifying tournament on the World Cup and also won a number of important victories over the leading world teams.
