Veteran defender Dani Alves will become Brazil's oldest World Cup captain in their final group game against Cameroon on Friday.
The 39-year-old former Barcelona full-back was controversially included in head coach Tite's squad for Qatar 2022 amid reports it was to act as a minder for close friend Neymar.
Alves, who now plays in Mexico for UNAM Pumas, will wear the skipper's armband as Tite prepares to make changes, with top spot in Group G guaranteed if they avoid defeat against Cameroon.
Alves, who has recovered from a knee injury to compete at his third World Cup finals, said: "For me it represents the fact that I can wear the Brazil jersey. It makes me very proud to be here.
"I've been with the Brazilian squad for many years and to be able to wrap up this cycle, playing a World Cup, makes me very happy.
"It's been 16 years with the national squad and I've tried to do my very best. Life, I think, always rewards the people who love what they do, who truly do their best in the mission.
"I think I'm reaping what I have planted over those 16 years."

Head coach Tite has outlined an attacking approach for his side for the tournament, too.

Who is their best player?
Paris St-Germain pair Neymar and Marquinhos will both be key for Brazil, not forgetting Real Madrid star Vinicius Jr.
It was Richarlison who dazzled in their opening game against Serbia, though, scoring a fantastic overhead kick, winning the official man of the match award as well as rating highest in our readers' player ratings.
