Team news & rosters
|Goalkeepers||Brenno, Lucao, Santos*|
|Defenders||Nino, Ricardo Graca, Guilherme Arana, Gabriel Menino, Dani Alves*, Diego Carlos*, Abner Vinicius, Bruno Fuchs|
|Midfielders||Matheus Henrique, Bruno Guimaraes, Douglas Luiz, Claudinho, Reinier|
|Forwards||Gabriel Martinelli, Paulinho, Richarlison, Matheus Cunha, Antony, Malcom|
Having bagged an opening hat-trick to hand Andre Jardine’s side a 4-2 victory earlier this week against Germany, Richarlison looks almost certain to retain his place for the Selecao.
With the title won on home soil five years ago at stake, there is likely to be little tinkering with a winning formula, particularly at the back where captain Dani Alves – the oldest men’s player at the tournament, at 38 – can help control the tempo of the game.
Predicted Brazil starting XI: Santos; Dani Alves, Nino, Diego Carlos, Arana; Douglas Luiz, Bruno Guimaraes; Antony, Claudinho, Richarlison; Matheus Cunha.
|Position||Ivory Coast roster|

There is the potential for a Manchester United double act for Soualiho Haidara’s side again, after both Eric Bailly and Amad Diallo started the victory against Saudi Arabia.
