Manchester United stars feature heavily in Brazil’s Qatar World Cup squad – Man United News And Transfer News

Manchester United will be heavily represented in the Brazil squad that travels to Qatar in a few days.

Brazil is seen as one of the strongest contenders to lift the most coveted trophy in world football along with teams like Argentina, France, England and Portugal.

The proud footballing nation boasts five World Cup titles and is firmly in the hunt for a sixth.

Brazil’s optimism is fueled by their star-studded attack consisting of the likes of Neymar, Vinicius Junior, Raphinha, Gabriel Jesus and Antony.

Along with Antony, there will be three other United stars on the plane to Qatar.

Brazil head coach Tite named Alex Telles, Fred and Casemiro in his squad in addition to Antony.

Antony’s involvement suggests his injury is not as serious as feared and he is likely fit enough to play a part in winning his national team the competition.

Fred and Casemiro, who haven’t played much together for the Red Devils, will be a force to be reckoned with in the Seleção colours.

Casemiro is likely to fill his preferred position of defensive midfielder, allowing Fred the freedom to venture higher up the pitch and lend a hand in the attacking phases of the game.

Telles, who is currently on loan at Spanish club Sevilla, will no doubt be pleased with his inclusion.

After leaving the Theater of Dreams for LaLiga in search of minutes with the first team, the defender acknowledged that his decision was motivated by the desire to play with his national team in Qatar.

Since his signing, Telles has cemented his status as a prominent member of the Sevilla squad and is a guaranteed starter for them.

Hopefully the United boys can contribute a great deal and give themselves the best possible chance of becoming world champions.
