Brazil's Final Squad and Match Schedule for Qatar

The official Brazilian World Cup 2022 team has been announced, and superstar Neymar is expected to be its captain.

Thiago Silva (38), Dani Alves (39), and other players with a lot of experience have been chosen by head coach Tite over younger players like the in-form Gabriel Magalhaes (24), who plays for Arsenal.

Brazil has the offensive potential to give any defense waking nightmares, as usual.

The choice of Gabriel Martinelli, a standout for Arsenal, in place of Roberto Firmino, a Liverpool player who has struggled so far this season, is a significant surprise.

Neymar, the Olympic gold medalist from Rio 2016, has been in the best shape of his life so far this season with PSG, while Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo guided Real Madrid to Champions League victory last year.

Richarlisson and Antony, two Olympic gold medalists from Tokyo 2020, Gabriel Jesus, who led Arsenal to the Premier League's top spot, and Barcelona offensive wide forward Raphinha round out the list.

Remember that Brazil lost to Belgium in the quarterfinals of the previous World Cup, and Tite has chosen a strong, seasoned midfield with Casemiro and Fabinho as potential defensive midfielders.

Can Brazil achieve a record sixth World Cup victory? There is unquestionably potential in this bunch of players.

Brazil's schedule at the World Cup 

When is Brazil playing? Who do they face in the group stage?

Read on:

All times are local in Qatar.

Group G

24 November
Brazil v Serbia (Lusail Stadium, Lusail; 10 p.m.)

28 November
Brazil v Switzerland (Stadium 974, Doha; 7 p.m.)

2 December
Cameroon v Brazil (Lusail Stadium; 10 p.m.)

Round of 16 (If Brazil qualifies from the group stage)

Monday 5 December
Winners of Group G vs. Runners-up of Group H (Stadium 974, Doha; 10 p.m.)
Tuesday 6 December
Winners of Group H vs. Runners-up of Group G (Lusail Iconic Stadium, Lusail; 10 p.m.)

Can Brazil get the sixth star?

The defense and midfield coverage on Tite's team is very strong, and the assault should be a delight to watch as it flows freely.

No one will want to play against this team in a knockout game because of their pace, cleverness, and alternatives - this attack is overflowing with goals.

There may be a lot more Joga Bonita in Qatar if Neymar maintains his current PSG form of 15 goals and 11 assists in 19 games.

Who may Brazil play in the knockout rounds?

If Brazil wins Group H, as many predict, they will then play either Portugal, Ghana, Uruguay, or Korea Republic as the group's runners-up.

With four great teams that may make it, Group H is one of the most difficult to predict.

Brazil would play the Group H runners-up, whose identity is also unknown if they were to finish second in their group.

In the quarterfinals and semifinals, there are some tantalizing prospective matches against Spain, England, Germany, and defending champions France.

Brazil won't be afraid of anyone, though, because of their team.
