One of the favourites to win the competition, Brazil is the main team to keep an eye on in Group G.
The famous yellow of Brazil leads the way in the number of World Cup wins, with the South Americans being named World Champions on five occasions. Germany and Italy are just one behind with four, so Seleção will be after that sixth title in Qatar.
Brazil haven’t won the title since 2002 in Japan, only reaching the quarter-finals in Russia in 2018 where they were knocked out by Belgium. In their last major tournament, Brazil were the hosts for the 2021 Copa America, where they were defeated by Argentina in the final.
Veteran manager Tite has been in charge of the Brazil national team since 2016, overseeing that 2018 quarter-final exit along with leading the side to their ninth Copa America title in 2019. Tite leads his Brazil side into the WC finals after they topped the CONMEBOL group and finished the qualifying campaign without a single defeat, in the group which featured the likes of Argentina and Uruguay.
There is a wealth of talent for Tite to choose from, with Neymar set to be the spearhead up front for Brazil. It’s interesting to see who will line up alongside the PSG superstar, with the likes of Manchester United’s Antony, Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinelli as well as Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr just some of the star-studded cast representing Seleção in Qatar.
There are huge names all over the pitch, from Alisson in goal to Thiago Silva and Marquinhos at the back, and Casemiro and Lucas Paqueta in midfield. With so many high-quality players, it’s no surprise that they are the favourites for the competition with 4/1 odds.
