Brazil about history; All the players in the World Cup squad are on the field Brazil makes history; All the players of the World Cup squad are on the field

Doha: Brazil made history by fielding all the players in the World Cup squad. Everyone in the 26-man squad has already taken the field for Brazil. With this, Brazil has become the team that gives the most players a chance in a World Cup.

In the pre-quarter against South Korea, history was born when the 34-year-old goalkeeper of Brazilian club Palmeras, Weverton Pereira da Silva, was substituted for Alison Becker in the 80th minute against South Korea. Brazil made nine changes to their starting XI against Cameroon in the last group match.

So far, teams have been allowed 23-member squads in the World Cups. In 2014, the Netherlands set a record by fielding all 23 players allowed at that time. That’s what Brazil corrected.

With a 4-1 victory over Korea, Brazil advanced to the quarterfinals of the World Cup for the eighth time in a row. Vinicius, Neymar, Richarlison and Lucas Paqueta scored for Brazil. Paik Seung Ho scored South Korea’s consolation goal in the 76th minute. Brazil’s opponent in the quarterfinals is Croatia. Croatia reached the quarter by defeating Japan in a shootout.
