Brazil will be chasing their first World Cup triumph in two decades when they take to the field in Qatar.

The South American giants go into the 2022 tournament as the highest-ranked team in the world.

Tite’s side have won seven games in a row and are unbeaten in their last 15 matches.

Brazil have won five previous World Cups and will boast a star-studded squad as they seek a sixth again.

Manager Tite has until Friday 21 October to submit an official provisional list of 35-55 players to FIFA, from which he will select his final 26-man squad for Qatar by Monday 14 November.

Based on World Cup qualifying squads and friendly rosters over the past year, these are the names most likely to be on Brazil’s preliminary list.
