Brazil boss Tite has named his 23-man squad that will be on the plane top Russia next month.

The coach had earlier named 15 players who were guaranteed a place but was later reduced to one after Dani Alves picked up an injury while on duty with PSG.

Team captain Neymar, who is still recovering from an injury, is among the stars to lead the Selecao’s hunt for a record sixth title in Russia.

Tite has added Manchester City's Danilo and Fagner from Corinthians to cover up Dani Alves. Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain have provided the most players to the squad.

Brazil is pooled in group E alongside Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia.

Squad;

Goalkeepers: Alisson (Roma), Ederson (Manchester City), Cassio (Corinthians)

Defenders: Miranda (Inter Milan), Marquinhos (Paris Saint-Germain), Thiago Silva (Paris Saint-Germain), Geromel (Gremio), Marcelo (Real Madrid), Fagner (Corinthians), Danilo (Manchester City), Filipe Luis (Atletico Madrid)

Midfielders: Casemiro (Real Madrid), Fernandinho (Manchester City), Paulinho (Barcelona), Renato Augusto (Beijing Guoan), Philippe Coutinho (Barcelona), Willian (Chelsea), Fred (Shakhtar Donetsk)

Forwards: Neymar (Paris Saint-Germain), Gabriel Jesus (Manchester City), Firmino (Liverpool), Taison (Shakhtar Donetsk), Douglas Costa (Juventus)
