Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City stars included in Brazil's squad for finals

All but one of coach Tite's starting lineup in World Cup qualifiers was confirmed in the squad on Monday: Alisson; Miranda, Marquinhos and Marcelo; Casemiro, Paulinho, Renato Augusto and Philippe Coutinho; Neymar and Gabriel Jesus.

Marcelo and Felipe Luis will be going head-to-head for the left-back slot while Paris Saint-Germain duo Marquinhos and Thiago Silva are likely to start in central defence.

"We've been making new exams on Neymar and his evolution is really fine", team doctor Rodrigo Lasmar told reporters.

"Next week, he'll be able to start training with the group".

With Dani Alves ruled out of the World Cup, Fagner is odds on to feature at right-back.

There were just three Brazil-based players included in the team. "And sometimes it goes beyond numbers, it has to do with feeling".

It led to doubts over whether Neymar would be fit for the World Cup, where Brazil face Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia in Group E.

The Selecao will prepare for the tournament with friendlies against Croatia and Austria on June 3 and 10, respectively.

Tite's 23-man squad, which was without major surprises, sees Alves replaced by Danilo (Manchester City) and Fagner, whom Tite knows from his time at the helm of Corinthians' 2015 national championship-winning team.

"Brazil are one of the favorites because of the football we have played, our consistency, our aggressiveness, our goals and our quick transitional play", he said.
