Arsenal stars Gabriel Jesus and Martinelli named in Brazil squad for World Cup

Arsenal pair Gabriel Jesus and Gabriel Martinell have been named in the Brazil squad for the 2022 World Cup, but Roberto Firmino and club teammate Gabriel Magalhaes have not made the cut.

Jesus had previously been left out of the most recent Brazil squad for the games in September, however he was always been a favourite to go to the World Cup.

The striker, who joined Arsenal in the summer from Manchester City for £45million, has impressed this season at Emirates Stadium and is keen to thrive for Brazil in Qatar after failing to score at the last World Cup in 2018.

Jesus will be joined in the Brazil squad by Martinelli, who has seemingly got the nod ahead of Liverpool’s Firmino. The 31-year-old has 55 caps for his country, scoring 17 times including three in qualification for Qatar.
