Neymar the star of a very impressive side
Those on Brazil to win the World Cup will be hoping the "first in, last out" saying rings true after the Samba Stars qualified fastest for the World Cup in ultra-impressive fashion.
Tite's charges finished ten points clear in South America, scoring the most goals (41) and conceding the fewest (11) with their only defeat coming on matchday one of the marathon Conmebol campaign in Chile.
The appointment of Tite in June 2016 to replace the awful Dunga has improved Brazil's fortunes and they appear a better balanced outfit than the one who crumbled spectacularly at the semi-final stage in 2014.
Neymar remains the star but he has decent back-up from Philippe Coutinho and Gabriel Jesus, while three-quarters of the Paris St-Germain defence - Dani Alves, Marquinhos and Thiago Silva - alongside Real Madrid's Marcelo should take Brazil far next summer.
