Biggest Teams Absent From the 2014 FIFA World Cup

The Top Ten

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

Ibrahimiovic deserves a chance at Brazil. By 2018, he will be too old. It is a shame he won't be there

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

Zlatan doesn't do auditions!

Czech Republic

Tomas Rosicky and Petr Cech all the way baby

At least rosicky and petr cech got a chance in 2006. Great gk


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

We will miss Paraguay. Nice team.


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

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.

Good team.
P.S. Ukraine are 16 in cocacola/FIFA ranking. Highest who aren't competing.


Denmark rule
Go agger and eriksen and schmeichel and lindegaard and bendtner and Sorensen


Serbia is 100 % missing... Ivanovic, Subotic, Markovic, Nastasic, Matic, Mitrovic... They should be there but it's Sinisa Mihajlovic's fault

Republic 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.

Ireland will win a world. Soon enough but not. This year or 2018

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


Robert Lewandowski is awesome too bad most of the rest of the players are terrible.

It's such a shame

The Contenders
New Zealand

Kholi and Tendulkar best midfielders in the world... once they have finished with cricket... just watch out soccer nations!

Dhoni won everything in cricket... Make him captain of Indian football team... Wc ourselves

With a billion people there is no excuse -

What the hell is he talking about


Wales in the biggest team that will miss the world cup. because they have player like bale and ramsey...


Egypt he cn win world cup

Egypt was so close for Brasil but anyway thank you, ALLAH
Maybe next time
Egypt country of pyramids and nature deserve a chance

South Africa

Pity that the South African soccer team does not have the national pride that the rugby and cricket teams have :( The national soccer team need a change of heart. Karin from Cape Town


And we were so close... :(


Good team work you will see them in the next World Cup inshallah no joke


Football crazy country. World class fans but no world class team.

They are better than Sudan!

I come from Singapore. So...


Well, they're kind of in the World Cup... They're playing for Switzerland


Canada has some of the world's strongest players such as Dwayne de Rosario.
They are a force to be reckoned with.

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


I didn't know the country I was born in had a football team :o
Paraguay deserves to be present in the world cup... It's a pity...
It's also a pity that The Netherlands didn't win :(


Ghurka players with swords - they would win every match

The Himalayan nation has the gut and stamina to score
