The Brazil team that will play in Russia has been released

Big names are missing including Juventus' Alex Sandro and Monaco's Fabinho

The Brazil national team set to travel to Russia has been released.

Brazil was among the first nations to qualify for this year’s World Cup, managing to garner 41 points after 18 games – leading the group.

Uruguay, Argentina, Colombia and Peru completed the list of the five teams set to represent South America in Russia.

Here is Brazil’s final squad:

GOALKEEPERS: Alisson, Ederson, Cassio

DEFENDERS: Fagner, Danilo, Marcelo, Filipe Luis, Marquinhos, Thiago silva, Miranda, Pedro Geromel.

MIDFIELDERS: Casemiro, Fernandinho, Paulinho, Renato Augusto, Fred, Phillipe Coutinho,Willian.

STRIKERS: Neymar, Gabriel Jesus, Douglas Costa, Roberto Firmino, Taison.
