World Cup 2018: 5 amazing players who did not make Brazil's 23-man squad
Brazil have announced their 23-man World Cup squad and it's filled with world-class players. Alisson, Cássio, Ederson; Danilo, Geromel, Filipe Luís, Marcelo, Marquinhos, Miranda, Fagner, Thiago Silva; Casemiro, Fernandinho, Fred, Paulinho, Coutinho, Renato Augusto, Willian; D.Costa, Firmino, Jesus, Neymar and Taison have made it.
Tite had a tough time picking his squad and it is evident because he left out some of the best talents despite them being in tremendous form or possessing a huge fan following. Here are 5 players who are unlucky to have missed out:
#5 Alex Sandro
Alex Sandro has not been at the same level as he was during the 2016/17 season but the left-back was still one of the best across Europe. He’s just unlucky that Marcelo and Filipe Luis were better than him.
The fullback has made just 100 appearances for his country ever since his debut in 2011! He was given hope by Tite when he picked him for the friendlies vs Russia and Germany but that was mainly because Luis was injured.
