Brazil v Argentina - 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Qualifier

Brazil have announced their 23-man World Cup squad and it's full of surprises. So many big names have missed out while a few have been selected to everyone's shock.

Tite has picked a team that is capable of winning the World Cup for sure, but some of the picks are just not understandable. There are better players who are desperate to wear that Brazil jersey but the coach has ignored them!

Here are 3 players who should have made it to Brazil's World Cup squad:

#3 Pedro Geromel

Independiente v Gremio - Conmebol Recopa Sudamericana 2018
Geromel's addition was unnecessary

Pedro Geromel is undoubtedly one of the best defenders in the Campeonato Brasileiro Série A. The 32-year-old is strong and puts his life on the line while defending in tough situations.

However, he is only in the squad as a back-up for Marquinhos, Thiago Silva and Miranda. The centre-back options are good enough and in case of an injury, Fernandinho or Casemiro could have chipped in.

Alex Sandro should have been the one taking his place in the squad. The Juve man has been brilliant this season and deserved to be at the World Cup.
