Stars Snubbed For Brazil's 2018 FIFA World Cup Squad

GETTYNeymar is facing a race against time to make the World Cup

He said the national team, seeking a record sixth World Cup, stands out for being "aggressive, scoring goals".

Striker Neymar, who hasn't played a game since breaking his foot in February, was named Monday as the star of the Brazilian national team which will seek a record sixth World Cup out in Russian Federation.

As expected, forward Neymar was included as he completes the final stage of his recovery from a foot injury, while Shakhtar Donetsk pair Fred and Taison were among few surprises. However, that list was shortened a man last week when starting right-back Dani Alves was ruled out of the tournament after injuring his right ACL while playing for PSG.

In fact, only six players from Brazil's 2014 FIFA World Cup squad - Thiago Silva, Marcelo, Fernandinho, Paulinho, Neymar and Willian - were once again called up by the five-time world champions.

Amazon, Seattle Employers Face New Tax to Curb Homelessness
Housing: $22.4 million (32 percent); Housing services, rental assistance helping people into housing, and case management. Almost 600 large employers making at least $20 million in gross revenues would pay about $500 a year per worker.

The Brazil squad will convene in the capital on 21 May before travelling to London a week later, basing themselves at Tottenham's training centre before friendlies with Croatia at Anfield on 3 June and Austria in Vienna on 10 June.

The inclusion of Taison, the coach admitted, suggested Coutinho could be taking a role in central midfield and leaving his spot for Willian.

Brazil are in Group E with Costa Rica, Serbia and Switzerland, and play their first match on Sunday, 17 June.

Manchester City supplied the most players to the team as Ederson, Danilo, Fernandinho and Gabriel Jesus each made the cut. "But Roberto Firmino will fight for that position in top form", Tite said.
