Brazilian squad is ever ready to end the World Cup title drought. This year in Group E, Brazil will play against Switzerland, Costa Rica and Serbia.
Despite their 16-year World Cup drought, Brazil has won the title more than any other country. They have last lifted the cup after toppling Germany 2-0 in 2002 FIFA World Cup co-hosted by South Korea and Japan.
As they bagged 41 points, Brazil led South American qualifiers. Thus they booked their place for the World Cup in Russia. They won 12 matches out of 18 and had five draws and one loss. Brazil scored 41 goals and conceded 11.
Brazil are targeting the 2018 World Cup with many well-known stars such as Neymar, Philippe Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Casemiro. Since 1930, Brazil are the only team which have been qualifying for all World Cup tournaments. Brazil completed the 2014 FIFA World Cup in the fourth spot even though they were the hosts.
