Roberto Firmino didn’t expect this would happen

Roberto Firmino didn’t expect this would happen. Firmino, a grieving Liverpool star, made his first public remarks following his exclusion from Brazil’s final World Cup roster. Being left off Brazil’s selection for Qatar was heartbreaking for Roberto Firmino, a well-liked player who has been a member of the Selecao squad for four years.

Firmino posted on Instagram, Passing by to say thank you for all the beautiful words. Every player’s desire is to play in the World Cup, and for me, it would be no different. Even if yesterday didn’t turn out the way I had planned or envisioned for my life, I can look back and be thankful to God for having already given me the opportunity to fulfill so many other dreams.

Philippe Coutinho, a former Liverpool teammate who was already questionable due to injury, was also left out because Tite selected younger, more direct attackers like Richarlison, Gabriel Martinelli, and Rodrygo to complete his lineup. Firmino’s position at Liverpool has decreased in recent years, and while he still contributes significantly as a rotation player for the team, his decline at Anfield may have affected his standing in Tite’s hierarchy.

It’s improbable that Firmino, who is 31 years old, will be considered for the 2026 World Cup. For Firmino to be competitive, Brazil has too many talented young attackers who will be peaking at that time.
