£44m Liverpool player finally set to play for the first time at this year’s World Cup

Fabinho for Brazil at World Cup 2022

Mr. Interceptor for Liverpool will make his first appearance at the Qatar World Cup as Fabinho ties his shoelaces while Brazil lock horns with Cameroon for their final group-stage game.

The Reds defensive midfielder is yet to make his presence felt at the greatest stage in this edition of the World Cup. As Brazil have already secured their place in the last 16, Tite is expected to make a lot of altercations for the final group fixture.

One of the players who will be benefiting from this is Liverpool’s no. 3 Fabinho. The Brazilian will make his World Cup 2022 debut against Cameroon on Friday as per the Gulf News.

Fabinho to be included in starting XI of Brazil

It is almost 3 weeks since Fabinho was last seen in action. The Brazilian last featured for the Merseyside giants against Southampton. It will be interesting to see how he copes with the pace of the World Cup. This will be a good game to make a return and shake the turf as there won’t be any pressure to win the fixture.

We have often seen Fabinho beginning to rust easily when out of action. However, this season the midfielder has seen a dip in his form and has been quite inconsistent for the Reds. But having no game time wouldn’t have helped Fabinho. It is a great opportunity to showcase his defensive qualities and make an impression in front of Tite.

Needing just 1 point to top the group, Tite’s will look to give chance to players on the bench. The Little Canary have a pool of star talented players who are yet to feature in this World Cup.

With one Merseyside player coming in there are chances that one might miss out. Manchester City’s goalkeeper Ederson might get a chance ahead of Liverpool’s no. 1 Alisson, who did feature in the previous two games for Brazil.

Brazil’s run at Qatar so far

Tite’s team is the only side who are yet to concede a goal in this World Cup. Brazil have been impressive right from kicking off their World Cup campaign against Serbia. Richarlison has scored one of the goals of the tournament so far in Brazil’s opener.

While Tite’s player did find it difficult to break down Switzerland’s solid defense. But Casemiro’s unstoppable shoot ensured Brazil’s entry in the round of 16 at Qatar.

Looking at Brazil’s performances so far it looks like Fabinho and Alisson might take the World Cup home. Anfield Home wishes the Liverpool duo good luck!
