The Selecao were the first nation to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, and will now start their preparations for the tournament.

The five-time world champions have arranged two friendlies for the upcoming international break in November, the first against Japan before they do battle with England four days later.

Brazil are still unbeaten in competitive matches since Tite took over, and have lost only one of their past 15 games – a friendly against Argentina.

The coach has once again rung changes in his squad, calling up the likes of Alex Sandro and Douglas Costa from Juventus, while David Luiz, among others, were not called up.

Here is Brazil's latest squad in full, as announced by the Selecao’s official Twitter account:

Goalkeepers: Alisson (Roma), Cassio (Corinthians), Ederson (Manchester City)

Defenders: Danilo (Manchester City), Miranda (Inter Milan), Marquinhos, Thiago Silva, Daniel Alves (all Paris Saint-Germain), Jemerson (Monaco), Marcelo (Real Madrid), Alex Sandro (Juventus)

Midfielders: Casemiro (Real Madrid), Fernandinho (Manchester City), Paulinho (Barcelona), Renato Augusto (Beijing Guoan), Philippe Coutinho (Liverpool), Willian (Chelsea), Diego (Flamengo), Giulano (Fenerbahce)

Forwards: Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City), Neymar (PSG), Roberto Firmino (Liverpool), Diego Souza (Recife), Douglas Costa (Juventus), Taison (Shakhtar)
