The Brazil national football squad has been announced for the 2012 London Olympics, as the country goes in search of its first Olympic title.

The South American giants have been drawn in Group C alongside Egypt, Belarus and New Zealand. While they should have no trouble qualifying, the real question is whether or not they can go all the way.

Coach Mano Menezes has so far announced only his preliminary 22-man squad for the tournament, which features a total of three players over 23 years old, as per Olympic rules. The squad will be cut down to just 18 players prior to the event.

Read on to see who made the squad, and what their chances of success are.
