Brazil World Cup 2022 squad, predicted line-up versus South Korea and star players

Five-time World Cup champions Brazil are the most successful team in the history of the competition, but 2002 was the last time the Selecao got their hands on the coveted trophy.

There were quarter-final exits in 2006, 2010 and 2018, while they had to settle for fourth spot in 2014 after a tournament to forget.

Now it's up to the likes of Neymar, Vinicius Junior and more to end the Selecao's drought and finally bring home the trophy once more.

They went past Serbia and Switzerland but lost to Cameroon in their final group game. However, they have successfully booked their berth in the round of 16 as group winners.

A spirited South Korea now awaits in the next round and Tite's side have to be at their very best if they want to reach the quarter-finals.

Brazil received a major blow just three days before their last-16 tie as full-back Alex Telles and forward Gabriel Jesus were ruled out of the World Cup due to injury.
