Neymar named in Brazil's 23-man World Cup squad

GETTYBrazil coach Tite has only lost one game since taking charge

Brazil coach Tite has already announced his final 23-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, with world-record transfer Neymar headlining his selection.

Brazil team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar said Neymar is making "great progress" after undergoing surgery to fix a broken metatarsal in early March.

"That's not being arrogant, it's just telling the truth", Tite said.

Neymar's returning form will be a key factor for the team, which lost influential right-back Dani Alves to a knee injury last week.

"This is the final stage of his recovery, he will be able to go to training sessions soon, and will play the friendlies", Lasmar said.

Tite accepted that his team would be among the frontrunners to win football's flagship event for a sixth time.

"We will be much stronger with Neymar doing well, but for him to do well the rest of the team has to be well, too", he said.

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

After sweeping aside South American opponents in the World Cup qualifiers, Brazil are seen as one of the favourites at the World Cup.

One certainty is that Manchester City's Gabriel Jesus will begin the tournament as the team's central striker ahead of Liverpool's Roberto Firmino. "The challenge is open on the right back, but Danilo has some advantage now because he has performed well recently", Tite said. "He's one of the three best players in the world, but for him to be at his peak, he needs a solid team around him", Tite said.
