FIFA World Cup Squads 2018

Soccer World Cup Squads

All provisional 30 man 2018 FIFA World Cup squads were named by May 14. As World Cup 2018 squads are announced they will be updated here as well.

When will the World Cup squads be announced?

The competing nations in the FIFA World Cup have until June 4 to announce their final 23 man World Cup squads. Some teams have already revealed their line ups, while others have yet to refine their provisional sides down.

It is worth noting that any players who are unable to compete in the tournament after being named in the official line up, can be replaced up to 24 hours prior to the first game by a player from outside the final 23.

Which countries have qualified for the World Cup?

The following nations have qualified for the 2018 World Cup in Russia: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Costa Rica, Colombia, Croatia, Denmark, Egypt, England, France, Germany, Iceland, Iran, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Nigeria, Panama, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Serbia, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tunisia and Uruguay.

Which big teams & players failed to qualify?

The one side that is shockingly absent from the 2018 World Cup is Italy, who failed to score a single goal in 3 hours of play against Sweden in the final play-off to qualify. Another noticeable omission is Netherlands, who had reached the final in 2010.

The United States, Chile, Ghana and Ivory Coast all had shock losses in qualifying that ended their campaigns.

Italian keeper Buffon’s fairytale ending to his career became a nightmare as Italy failed to reach the final 32, while Chilean Alexis Sanchez will be watching from the sidelines.
