Tournament favourites Brazil begin 2022 World Cup campaign against Serbia in Group G… but what time is kick-off? What TV channel is it on? What is their head-to-head record? And what is the team news?
All eyes will be on Brazil’s opening game against Serbia in Group G, with the Selecao favourites to win the World Cup in Qatar.
Tite has a glittering array of attacking talents at his disposal, led by Neymar, and now could be the Paris Saint-Germain man’s time to shine on the biggest stage of all.
Brazil have won the World Cup five times but since lifting the trophy in 2002, they’ve failed to cut it with the powerhouses of Europe.
Neymar and Co are the favourites for the World Cup and open their campaign on Thursday
Their opening game against Serbia is by no means a gimme. Aleksandr Mitrovic and Dusan Vlahovic can bludgeon their way to goals. However, both men’s fitness will be key as the pair recover from recent injuries.
The likes of Dusan Tadic and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic have the ability to dictate a game and could make life difficult.
With the clash quickly approaching, Sportsmail takes you through everything you need to know below.
