Arsenal is currently top of the Premier League table above Manchester City and Tottenham. The squad is playing at the top level, giving impressive performances right from the start. Ahead of the last international break before the World Cup in November, the Brazilian national team released its squad. The Brazilian team is supposed to play two friendlies against Ghana and Tunisia. The squad list released by coach Tite didn’t include any of the three Gabriels’ in the Arsenal squad.
Gabriel Jesus, Gabriel Martinelli, and Gabriel Magalhaes have all been permanent starters for Arteta’s team. Arsenal roped in Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City in the summer. It would be a mild sentence to say that he is indeed the perfect fit for the Arsenal side. Not a pure number 9, the Brazilian has been coached under the great Pep Guardiola to drop deep and almost perform the duties of a false 9. In the six matches he has played for the red and white, he has scored four goals while providing another three assists. The other winger, Gabriel Martinelli, has also started the season in top form. Predominantly playing on the right wing, the player has scored three goals for the side. On the other hand, Gabriel Magalhaes has formed a formidable backline along with William Saliba.
Arsenal forwards and their involvement in the World Cup
While looking at the possible Brazilian squad for the World Cup, one can wonder if Tite will include the three Gabriels in the team. Friends have started asking questions about what more the players can do to get a chance on the team.
Gabriel Jesus still has a high chance of getting into the World Cup squad. He has been a top performer for the national team in all the appearances. But for the other two, chances are bleak.
Having them back with the rest of the players might not be a bad idea. Arteta would then have a chance to rest his players and think of more ideas on how his side could perform even better.
