Brazil boss Tite is spoilt for options in attack ahead of the 2022 Qatar World Cup PSG star Neymar is expected to still be the star of the show for the Brazilians Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, Raphinha and Gabriel Jesus will all compete for places  Click here for all the latest World Cup 2022 news and updates

Brazil are spoilt for options in attack. It will be tricky to even pick who makes the squad, let alone who will be leading the line.

The statistics also underline the quality of the names they have to choose from, with manager Tite’s side prolific in qualifying, scoring 40 goals across their 17 games whilst only conceding five.

Considering the next best goal tally was Argentina with 27, this was a seriously impressive feat, even for Brazil.

That’s before we even cycle through the options they have to choose from, which includes Neymar, Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, Raphinha, Richarlison, Gabriel Jesus, Roberto Firmino, Gabriel Martinelli, and Antony among many others.

Below, Sportsmail takes a look at all of the potential options and how they could line-up during the 2022 Qatar World Cup

NEYMAR

With 121 caps and 75 goals, Neymar remains Brazil’s golden boy at the age of 29 and is central to their hopes of winning a first World Cup since 2002.

Neymar also seems to be back to his best so far this season at French giants PSG, which is a major boost to his country.

They’ve often been unlucky that the star forward has suffered injuries prior to or during major tournaments. They’ll be hoping this time round he can carry his nation on a successful journey to the trophy.

Neymar has started this season on fire and could be in line for a huge tournament to prove he is among the world’s greatest players – having scored 11 goals and picked up 8 assists in just 13 matches in all competitions at his club side this season.

VINICIUS JR 

The question is more about who will play alongside Neymar, and one of the first in the picture is surely Vinicius Jr, who has burst onto the scene in style.

The Real Madrid forward was vital in helping seal both the LaLiga title and Champions League crown last season.

The 22-year-old has got five goals and one assist to his name for Los Blancos so far in LaLiga this season.

Despite his good form at club level, he has still failed to take that onto the international stage, only scoring once in his 16 caps.

RODRYGO

Much like Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo is making a name for himself with Real Madrid, having also played a key part in a front three alongside his fellow Brazilian and Karim Benzema last season.

The 21-year-old has also notched three goals and two assists in just seven league appearances for Real so far this campaign to continue that form.

The former Santos forward has only made six caps and found the net once, but his club form could be a reason for him to be picked.

Rodrygo and Vinicius are used to playing alongside each other in a front three which could also work in their favour.

RAPHINHA

The Barcelona summer signing seems to be a regular in the Brazil squad of late under boss Tite – having made 11 caps and found the net five times.

His summer move from Leeds United to Barcelona was fully expected, but the winger has not hit the ground running, only scoring once in his opening seven games for the Catalan giants in LaLiga.

The 25-year-old is a safe bet to be picked for the squad after becoming a regular during the last few international breaks.

Raphinha will, however, have to improve his fortunes to be a starter with the wealth of attacking talent at Brazil’s disposal.

RICHARLISON 

The £60million Tottenham summer signing is very much a key part of Brazil’s plans with more experience than most of their attacking options on the international stage.

The former Everton forward has 17 goals to his name for his country in 38 caps. The only issue for Richarlison was once he joined Spurs, would he get enough game time to remain a solid option.

He has notched twice in the Champions League so far this campaign, but has failed to produce in the Premier League as of yet.

Richarlison did score three goals in two friendlies for Brazil over Ghana and Tunisia in the final international break ahead of the World Cup.

GABRIEL JESUS

Arguably the most in-form attacker for Brazil other than star boy Neymar, having switched Manchester City for Arsenal this summer to become the main man.

Jesus has notched five goals and added three assists in his first eight league games for the Gunners. He is a huge reason Mikel Arteta’s side are sitting top of the Premier League.

The strange decision around Jesus was that he was left out of Brazil’s final international squad ahead of the World Cup.

Most believing it was for Tite to take a look at his other attacking options, especially given his track record for Brazil, having scored 19 times in 56 appearances.

ANTONY

Manchester United’s summer signing could be one to miss out with so many options ahead of him in the pecking order.

The £85million man is still adapting to life in the Premier League, having started the season with Dutch side Ajax, where he hit the ground running with two goals in just five appearances in all competitions.

He has now made three appearances for the Red Devils and found the net on his Premier League debut against Arsenal.

Antony still seems to be one of the attackers on the outside looking in. He has got 11 caps and two goals to his name for the Selecao.

GABRIEL MARTINELLI 

Gabriel Martinelli missed out on Brazil’s final squad ahead of the World Cup and has often been the one to miss out on selection.

It could be a similar story for Qatar with so many options in attack for boss Tite to choose from.

Martinelli has however become a key figure for Arsenal in attack and has created a good link with fellow Brazilian Gabriel Jesus.

The 21-year-old wide forward, who has just three caps, has scored three goals and picked up an assist for Arsenal this season.

ROBERTO FIRMINO 

The Liverpool ace looked to be old news, after falling down the pecking order at Liverpool, and not getting enough game time to warrant a place in the squad.

The 31-year-old has put himself back in contention with his terrific start to the new season, despite seeming to play second fiddle to Darwin Nunez this season, instead he has re-gained his place.

Firmino has five goals and three assists in just six Premier League appearances for the Reds so far and even got a call-up for Brazil’s last international squad.

His experience could be invaluable with 55 caps and 17 goals, while also playing in major tournaments for his country previously.
