* Provisional Squad lists have been confirmed and published by FIFA last 16 May at 12:00 CET who will represent their nations on the global stage between 12 June – 13 July.
Each coach now has until 2 June to trim down their selection to the final 23-man squad to compete at the tournament. That final side will be announced on 5 June at 12:00 CET on FIFA.com, along with extensive profiles for all the players who will be taking part.
Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari on Wednesday unveiled the 23 men he trusts can deliver a sixth FIFA World Cup™ ahead of this year’s event starting 12 June on home soil. Having already led the most successful nation in the tournament’s history to their fifth title at Korea/Japan 2002, Scolari is now out to lay the ghosts of 1950, when A Seleção lost the trophy match to Uruguay in Rio de Janeiro.
His list contained no major surprises, although AC Milan forward Robinho missed the cut along with former FIFA Ballon d’Or winners Ronaldinho and Kaka, an echo of his decision to dump Romario more than a decade ago. Robinho missed the cut despite facing Chile in a recent friendly. With Scolari having said for months he knew in his own mind who he wanted to pick, save for one or two exceptions, the focus was on who would provide back-up for a first XI who saw off world champions Spain in last year’s FIFA Confederations Cup warm-up.
