Maxwell had his debut only few months ago for Brazil, he is also new to the NT and having him instead of Filipe Luis who had his debut before Maxwell is absurd.
I think you havent been following our NT recently, because Filipe Luis has like 1-2 starts since Scolari took over and Maxwell has started most of our games post confederations cup and was one of our best players in every single one of those matches.


That maybe true, but still, not even giving a chance to Filipe Luis to show what he's capable of is a disgrace, he should've been called for one of the friendlies before the WC.

NT's are not always about the quality of the players as the teams tbh, compared to club tournaments. Chemistry is so important when you only play max 10 games a year with each other instead of 50. That is why you can't just pick players who haven't played on the team up to a WC.

I'm slightly disappointed at the exclusion of Felipe Luiz and Diego Alves but I was already expecting that.

I would have liked to see Coutinho instead of Hernanes or Jo just to give him some experience.

 Laughing at the extreme butthurt by some people because their club players weren't called.

Is it just me or is the hype around the World Cup not as much as in previous years?

Well, probably in the preliminary squad.

BTW, I'm most curious which GKs Jogi Löw will nominate. Manuel Neuer is a given, but then he has a number of GKs where he can't really do anything wrong anyway - from Roman Weidenfeller to Bernd Leno and Marc-André ter Stegen. And even GKs like Oliver Baumann, Kevin Trapp and Ralf Fährmann would probably have no problems to get into most other NTs (bar maybe Spain, Italy and Switzerland).

Oh, and talking about Switzerland - I would still prefer Yann Sommer to become the number 1 with Diego Benaglio as Nr.2. (And for Nr.3, I'm really curious whether Ottmar Hitzfeld will nominate Roman Bürki or Marwin Hitz, now that the original Nr.3 Marco Wölfli is injured.)

Henrique over Castan Laughing

Leandro just can't buy a break....has been the best Brazilian CB all season full stop and what does Felipao do? Picks a scrub from an average defense instead.

Can't disagree with Löw's selections really. 7 of 30 won't make the official squad.

No Gomez? I thought his spot was assured.

Poor Gundogan.

Volland is a great forward from what I've seen. I hope that he won't start Klose instead of him.
