Coach Tite announced his last squad before the World Cup finals in Qatar last night, giving the players one last chance to appear in the list that will participate in the tournament, which begins on November 20.
“These are opportunities for peace and a sense of justice in the future (in the final list),” Tite told a news conference. I can’t close the squad now, so another player might come out (before the World Cup).”
