Brazil is the top team going into Qatar 2022. They are followed by Belgium and then by Argentina. Defending champion France is in the fourth spot. The US National Team is in rank No.16.

Brazil has won the World Cup five times but has not won the title since 2002. In the last four World Cups, they have not made it past the quarterfinals. Their last best performance was in 2014 when they lost to Germany in the semifinals. The 7-1 loss was on home soil.

If the recent results are any indication, it appears that Brazil may be well on its way to winning its sixth title.

They are playing in Group C and will start the World Cup playing against Serbia on November 24. In the group stages, they will also be playing against Cameroon and Switzerland.

Some of the players that are expected to play for Brazil in FIFA include Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Magalhaes. The country is allowed to take 26 players into Qatar.
