Brazil’s stars in the World Cup: Neymar Jr., Vinicius, Rodrygo, Alisson, Antony…

After the stumble of some great teams, Brazil gains strength as a great favorite to win the World Cup. Tite’s team mixes experience, with Neymar, Casemiro or Thiago Silva at the helm; with a youth that promises to give something to talk about. After a four-year process, including two Copa América finals, the ‘canarinha’ arrives in Qatar with a talented crop about to explode in the elite. Discover here who their stars are in each position.


Alisson Becker

At 30 years old, the Liverpool goalkeeper arrives at the World Cup very questionable after a very irregular season. For the first time since he landed at the Anfield team, the former Roma conceded more goals than games played. Tite continues to trust him as his starting goalkeeper for the merits achieved throughout his career with the five-time champion.


The one of the City is the big acting of the ‘canarinha’. The Brazilian goalkeeper has had a great season in Guardiola’s team, with whom he has collected nine clean sheets, but conceded 18 goals this season. Tite has him as the second option in goal, only behind Alisson, although he does not lack quality to be the regular starter.



The one from Madrid is the great unknown of Tite. The defender has made merits in recent seasons to be a permanent starter in the ‘canarinha’, but from Brazil they keep the couple Thiago Silva – Marquinhos as the starter for this World Cup. The coach has always seen a good right-back in Militao, a position without a clear name in the last few.



The one of the Manchester United has attained to settle down in the scheme of Ten Hag. As a pivot, he has been one of the keys to Brazil in recent years, supporting the team almost alone in midfield in the offensive phase. In Tite’s tactic of going on the attack with four forwards, Casemiro will be one of the key pieces so that the team does not break.

Bruno Guimaraes

The Newcastle player is the great revelation of the Premier League, being part of the eleven of the season until the World Cup breakeither. Being a midfielder with a lot of back and forth, a ‘box to box’ very much in English taste, the player is positioned as the ideal companion for Casemiro in the pivot in the most physical matches.



The great Brazilian star of the lustrum. The one from PSG arrives plugged into the Qatar 2022 World Cup after a season in which he was highly questioned, and about to leave the team in the summer. Based on goals and assists, he has managed to smile again and is already facing what may be, according to many, his last World Cup as a player.

Vinicius Jr.

The one from Madrid is called to take the witness as a great star of Brazil. Shis great start in Madrid has led him to become one of the most valued players for the Transfermarkt portal, with an appraisal valued at 120 million eurosthe third with the highest price behind Haaland and Mbappé.


Tite’s great boost and one of the best names on the Brazilian bench. The Real Madrid winger has not yet managed to break down the door of ownership, with Neymar, Vinicius, Raphinha and Richarlison ahead. In his first participation in the World Cup, many eyes will be on the creative explosiveness of the former Santos.
