Brazil’s starting XI shows why people are making them major contenders for this World Cup.
Premier League watchers will be familiar with plenty of them, with Liverpool’s Alisson in goal, Chelsea’s Thiago Silva in defence, Man Utd’s Casemiro in midfield alongside West Ham’s Paqueta, and Tottenham’s Richarlison in attack, supported by former Leeds winger Raphinha.
There is plenty of strength in depth, too, with standout performers in England this season itching to come on, in the shape of Arsenal’s Jesus and Martinelli, Newcastle’s Guimaraes and Man Utd’s big-money signing Antony.
We also have PSG superstar Neymar – he’s got 13 goals and 11 assists in 19 league and Champions League appearances this season.
