Neymar Named in Brazil's 23-Man World Cup Squad

Brazil have named Paris St-Germain forward Neymar in their 23-man squad for the World Cup in Russia. Neymar, 26, had an operation on a fractured metatarsal in March and the Brazil team doctor said he would be out of action for three months.

Manchester City quartet Ederson, Danilo, Fernandinho and Gabriel Jesus are among the Premier League-based players named in the squad.

They are joined by Liverpool's Roberto Firmino and Chelsea's Willian. PSG right-back Dani Alves was last week ruled out because of a knee injury.
