I'm so sad that we wont be able to see ZLATAN play in the world cup he is a great player and the best to not be in the world cup

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is such a talent! Too bad we won't see him at the 2014 FIFA World Cup. - Magnolia

Zlatan says, " don't watch the World Cup, I'm not playing."

Zlatan doesn't do auditions!

Paraguay could just be the better team that we are missing. Much experience and quite frankly I see them with more talent than a select few of qualified contenders, Australia, South Korea, Japan and Honduras

My native Ukraine was so close... Well, maybe next time. It's a pity, I really wanted to see the Ukrainian team in Brazil - Irina2932

Ukraine should be #1. What the hell are countries like Turkey, Paraguay, and Serbia doing ahead of them?

Our team is very strong now. We were available to beat any opponent in play-off... But not France.

7Republic of Ireland

Small country that competes well on the world stage in a number of sports. Would love to see Northern Ireland join the Republic for soccer as they do in rugby. New coach, Martin, has improved morale and vision opening things up after Trapp for the better.

4 years ago a frog denied us entry with his hand... This time we had to face Zlatan, Ozil, Muller, Gotze, Reus and many more in qualifying. The Irish are brilliant and the likes of Whelan, Keano, Long and Robbie Brady will be missed at this World Cup.

Yes they got
Messi NEYMAR silva Gerrard lampard keane mcgeady Torres and suarez

20Canada

With people coming from all over the world to live in Canada, it is only a matter of time before Canada becomes a world cup force

Canada was one or two points away from the next stage of qualifying.

Play in snow - even better play on ice - make the ball a giant snowball.

Canada is becoming a dominant force in football
