PREDICTED LINEUP AND FATE OF THE BRAZIL NATIONAL TEAM

Brazil has announced a very talented squad as expected. Meanwhile, we could see Richarlison leading the front three along with Martinelli and Anthony. Moreover, Reiner could be seen in a creative role in the midfield along with a pivot of Douglas Luiz and Bruno Guimaraes. In defence, we will be seeing Dani Alves and Guilherme Arana as the full-backs and Diego Carlos and Abner Vinicius at the heart of the defence.

Although Brazil are one of the favourites to win the tournament but looking at the other teams in the competition it might be possible that they might be knocked out in the semi-finals.
