Brazil will kickstart their FIFA World Cup campaign with a crucial match against a formidable Serbia in a Group G encounter at the Lusail Stadium on Thursday.
Brazil will be powered by a strong attacking lineup and with players like Neymar, Vinicius Jr, among others, they are hot favourites to go all the way and clinch the title. However, Serbia are no pushovers and they too have potent strikers in Dusan Tadic and Dusan Vlahovic.
Even before the kickoff whistle, Brazil have created history since they become the only country in World Cup history to have qualified for the main round since the first edition back in 1930.
