Road to Qatar 2022

Qualification was routine for Brazil on route to their 23rd FIFA World Cup finals, undefeated in CONMEBOL qualifying and only held to draws on three occasions. Highlights included an eye-catching 2-0 win at Uruguay and a hard-earned point away against Argentina. Coach Tite has created a vibrant attacking team built around a strong spine of Ederson, Thiago SIlva, Casemiro and Neymar. With sprinkles of youthful attacking talent in the form of Vini Junior, Gabriel Martinelli and Rodrigo, Brazil is rightly considered one of the favourites for the title at Qatar 2022.

Player to Watch 

Having reached the age of 30, Neymar knows this could be his last chance to win a World Cup after the agony of 2014 -- when his tournament was ended by injury before he saw his team-mates collapse against Germany -- and the disappointment of 2018. The former Santos prodigy left Barcelona for Paris Saint-Germain in a world record deal in 2017 but his move to France has not brought him the collective or individual honours he craves. He has not won the Champions League at PSG and he has still never won a Ballon d'Or. None of that will matter if he can lead Brazil to World Cup glory.
