Biggest Teams Absent From the 2014 FIFA World Cup

The Top Ten
1 Sweden

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 doesn't do auditions!

2 Czech Republic
3 Paraguay

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.

4 Ukraine

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.

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

5 Denmark
6 Serbia
7 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.

8 Turkey
9 Romania
10 Poland

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

It's such a shame

The Contenders
11 New Zealand
12 India

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

India can do it

13 Wales
14 Egypt

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

15 Scotland
16 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

17 Afghanistan
18 Venezuela
19 Sudan
20 Hungary
21 Singapore

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

They are better than Sudan!

I come from Singapore. So...

22 Albania

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

23 Canada

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.

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

24 Lebanon

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 :(

25 Nepal
