Brazil Portraits - 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia

Brazil World Cup Squad Photos

Perhaps motivated by the humiliating 7-1 loss to Germany at the 2014 World Cup in — gulp! — Brazil, this storied side seems determined to make a strong showing in 2018. Brazil’s coach, the mononymous Tite, took the reins two years ago, sparked a nine-game winning streak, and turned an underperforming team into an absolute juggernaut. It’s not all good news for the jogo bonito practitioners, however: Superstar midfielder Neymar is still recuperating from a February foot injury and will have to scramble to get back to full strength. His supporting cast, however, is stellar: Dani Alves, Phillippe Coutinho, and Willian are just a few of the big names that make Brazil so dangerous.

Here, portraits of all 23 players on the 2018 World Cup squad.
