The Brazilian national team has on Monday announced their 26-man squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

There is also a call-up for Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar, and Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus, Man United's Antony among others, in the squad.

Liverpool star Firmino was the most noticeable absentee with Martinelli, who only has three caps for his country, preferred. Other players NOT included in the Selecao squad are Nottingham Forest full-back Renan Lodi, Roma defender Roban Ibanez, Atletico Madrid's Matheus Cunha and Arsenal defender Gabriel, who scored for the Gunners in their 1-0 win at Chelsea on Sunday.
