Ederson, Firmino and Willian on the bench: Brazil can field a reserve team better than England's first XI at the World Cup
Ederson is one of many quality players who made the squad but may not play in the World Cup
Brazil is a nation that has reached the pinnacle of football on numerous occasions.
Originally known for its 'Samba football' style, the Selecao were a truly formidable force, winning three out of four World Cups between 1958-70.
The South American country won football's biggest prize in 1994 and 2002 to make it a total of five World Cup crowns – a feat no other team has achieved.
Brazil have failed to emulate the same high standards since and although they made the semi-finals of the 2014 tournament which they hosted, they were knocked out with a humiliating 7-1 defeat at the hands of eventual winners Germany.
This was arguably one of the lowest moments in the history of Brazilian football, but many think the current crop of players could bring back the good old days.
Current boss Tite has already named his 23-man squad for this summer's World Cup in Russia and the depth in talent they have is truly outstanding.
This is despite the fact that PSG full-back Dani Alves will miss the tournament with injury, while David Luiz and Alex Sandro did not make the cut.
Unsurprisingly, Brazil are one of the favourites to win the tournament with the likes of Neymar, Philippe Coutinho, Casemiro and Alisson at their disposal.
A number of great players will struggle for minutes in Russia such as Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson and Liverpool star Roberto Firmino, due to the seriously high ability of the whole squad.
Brazil's back-up side is so good that it makes England's first XI look positively terrible!
Below you can see Brazil's second XI, comprised of the players who will be on the World Cup plane but unlikely to start.
And below is the first team that Tite is likely to select for the World Cup.
