Brazil name squad for 2018 World Cup

Brazil have named their 23-man squad for the 2018 World Cup, with Paris Saint-Germain forward Neymar included.

The Selecao are among the teams fancied to challenge for the crown in Russia, but they will be without key defender Dani Alves through injury.

There are six Premier League players included in the squad, meanwhile, with Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson joined by teammates Danilo, Fernandinho and Gabriel Jesus.

Liverpool attacker Roberto Firmino is also included alongside Chelsea’s Willian.

Brazil will open their 2018 World Cup campaign Switzerland on June 17, while they will also take on Costa Rica and Serbia in the group stage of the competition.
