Brazil manager Tite announced his squad for the World Cup on November 7.
Arsenal forward Gabriel Martinelli made the cut, while Liverpool forward Roberto Firmino was a surprise omission.
There are plenty of familiar faces in the squad, with 12 Premier League players included.
These include Martinelli and Gabriel Jesus, but their team-mate Gabriel Magalhães was left out.
Manchester United's Antony, Liverpool's Alisson and Manchester City's Ederson were all in the squad.
Plenty of veterans were picked, with 39-year-old right back Dani Alves included and Chelsea's 38-year-old centre-back Thiago Silva going to his fourth World Cup.
Flamengo forward Pedro, 25, celebrated his call up by immediately proposing to his girlfriend Fernanda Nogueira.
