Twenty years since their last World Cup glory, Brazil will attempt to collect the trophy for the sixth time at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The Canarinha, at the top of the FIFA world rankings, has lost just one match since the start of 2021; by one goal to Argentina in the Copa America final.
Four teams from CONMEBOL and Brazil finished on top with 14 wins and three draws. Neymar finished as their top scorer with eight goals.
Tite succeeded Dunga as Head Coach of Brazil in June 2016. Led by the 60-year-old, Brazil reached the quarter-finals of the 2018 World Cup before winning the Copa America in 2019 and finishing second last year. There is no doubt that he wants to add the World Cup to his roster this year as he has announced that he will step down as Brazil’s head coach after the tournament.
As part of their World Cup preparations, a youthful Brazilian team shot past Ghana three times, including two goals for Tottenham’s Richarlison, before taking on Tunisia in their final warm-up match on Tuesday, September 27.
