Richarlimum and Richarlidad will be delighted with their son's achievement but the former Watford man undoubtedly deserves a place in the attack.
He scored 13 goals in the Premier League for Liverpool, while he's also made a promising start to international football - having scored three goals in his first eight appearances for the Selecao.
Brazil coach Tite has picked a strong squad for the tournament on home soil, with a whole host of world-class players at his disposal.

However, there are also some other noticeable names missing from the squad. Liverpool's Fabinho has missed out on a spot, despite having a very good season.

Purely based off form and merit, Fabinho deserves the call-up over Casemiro.
Tite's list was solid, but his mistakes he made in the World Cup of unconditionally sticking to his favorites could cost Brazil.

Moreover, Real Madrid duo Marcelo and Vinícius Júnior, Juventus' Douglas Costa, West Ham United's Felipe Anderson and Tottenham Hotspur's Lucas Moura are all not in the squad.
Brazil will take on Qatar and Honduras in friendlies at the start of the next month in preparation for group games against Bolivia, Venezuela and Peru.
