Brazil coach Tite has announced his 26-man squad for the upcoming Fifa World Cup in Qatar, with Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino omitted from the squad.

The 39-year-old veteran defender Dani Alves made the 26-man squad, despite not playing a single match in two months, becoming the oldest player ever named to a Brazilian World Cup squad

Meanwhile, Firmino failed to make the cut for the World Cup squad, despite recently returning to form for Liverpool, losing out to Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus, Flamengo playmaker Pedro and Tottenham’s Richarlison.

The “Selecao” will be led by Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar, who will be looking to end their 20-year World Cup title drought.

Neymar will link up with Arsenal’s Jesus and Vinicius Junior of Real Madrid, who will form Brazil’s attacking line up front.

Brazil will enter the tournament as one of the favourites to lift the title after they went undefeated during the World Cup qualifying campaign.

They will train for five days next week in Turin, Italy before heading to Qatar, where they play their Group G opener against Serbia on November 24.
