This Friday Brazil announced the list of summoned for the last two friendlies prior to the Qatar World Cup 2022 and there were surprises. The high level of several players from the South American country has forced in the last calls for Tite to leave strong names out and this time was no exception.
Undoubtedly, the great surname that does not appear and that has made the most noise is that of gabriel jesus. The Arsenal center forward who has scored three goals in six games with the London squad will not be present for the friendlies that Verdeamarela will play against Ghana Y Tunisia. The scorer is also one of the footballers who had worn the shirt of his national team the most times in the cycle of Tite with 23 appearances, just behind Alisson, Marquinhos and Thiago Silva.
For this FIFA date in September, the coach leaned in that position for Richarlisonof great present in Tottenham, Pedrofigure of Flamengo, and Robert firminoone fixed in each duel.
Two other absentees who have attracted attention have been Daniel Alves Y Philippe Coutinho. The 39-year-old winger is not going through his best present at Pumas de México and for this reason, despite having made public his desire to be in Qatar, for now it is difficult for this to happen. For his part, the Aston Villa midfielder is reuniting with his best level, but some physical ailments would have been decisive for his exclusion.
Interestingly, Brazilian portals recalled that in 2018 Tite summoned five footballers to the last friendlies that finally did not travel to Russia. these were Net, Rodrigo Caio, Anderson Talisca, willian joseph Y Daniel Alves. For this reason, the absence of these new players could not be definitive for the Qatar World Cup.
