On the basis only that West Ham players will be involved in the World Cup we report that Lucas Paquetá has been named in Brazil’s 26-man squad.
The West Ham United midfielder is heading for Qatar after being selected, as expected, for the upcoming tournament, which kicks-off on Sunday 20 November.
The Hammers No8 will hope to add to his 35 caps and seven goals in the canary yellow and green when Brazil face Serbia, Switzerland and Cameroon in Group G.
CandH‘s coverage, of what we consider an obnoxious tournament, will be limited to items such as this, injuries to our players, if any, – hopefully not – and their performances of any games in which they may appear as a result.
A reminder here that immigrants, being paid near slave wages have, died during the building of the stadium although the organisers clearly claim there have been only three.
Mainstream reporting alleges that there have been thousands, however.
