Brazil Confirm Squad For World Cup Qualifiers, 8 Stars Snubbed!

Brazil have announced their squad for next month's 2022 World Cup qualifiers, but there were a few surprise omissions from head coach Tite.

Click through the gallery above to see the players that did not make the squad.

Selecao take on Colombia and Argentina in back-to-back games next month as they look to edge closer to securing a spot at the World Cup in Qatar.

However, there was no place in the squad for Real Madrid star Vinicius Junior who has registered nine goals and five assists in 14 appearances across all competitions this season.

Instead, there was a surprise call-up for Barcelona midfielder Philippe Coutinho who has only netted just one goal in eight games this campaign.

Tite's men currently sit top of the South America World Cup qualifying table and are one of two teams with unbeaten record in the qualifiers.

Brazil squad:

Goalkeepers: Alisson (Liverpool), Ederson (Manchester City), Gabriel Chapeco (Gremio)

Defenders: Danilo (Juventus), Emerson Royal (Tottenham Hotspur), Alex Sandro (Juventus), Renan Lodi (Atletico Madrid), Eder Militao (Real Madrid), Lucas Verissimo (Benfica), Marquinhos (Paris Saint-Germain), Thiago Silva (Chelsea)

Midfielders: Casemiro (Real Madrid), Fabinho (Liverpool), Fred (Manchester United), Gerson (Marseille), Lucas Paqueta (Lyon), Philippe Coutinho (Barcelona)

Forwards: Antony (Ajax), Roberto Firmino (Liverpool), Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City), Matheus Cunha (Atletico Madrid), Neymar (Paris Saint-Germain), Raphinha (Leeds United).
