Brazil – Official squad for the 2022 World Cup: players, jersey numbers, coaches and officials
Hardly any other country has such a broad squad at the World Cup as the Brazilians. It starts in goal, where two world-class goalkeepers, Alisson Becker and Ederson, are battling for number one. Liverpool’s Becker, world goalkeeper of 2019, will most likely take over this role in Qatar.
The defense is also full of stars from clubs like Juventus Turin, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Chelsea FC. Juve have three national players available in Danilo, Bremer and Alex Sandro, and the 39-year-old former Bianconeri Dani Alves has also made it into coach Tite’s squad.
Big names continue in midfield – Casemiro, Fabinho and Fred to name a few. But the true strength of the squad is found in attack. Superstar Neymar is currently in impressive form, in 20 competitive games for Paris Saint-Germain he scored 15 goals and put on another twelve. So he will lead the team. In this task, however, he also gets support from the likes of Vinicius Junior, Gabriel Jesus, Richarlison and Rodrygo in attack. The forward position is also so full of stars that Liverpool FC’s Roberto Firmino didn’t get a World Cup ticket.
