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