Currently in Barcelona receiving treatment to be back fit for his club come next season.

Dani Alves
World best right back Alves will miss out due to injury he sustained during PSG domestic cup final of which result to surgery that lead him out of the world cup. Dani alves have been in Brazil team since 2006 world cup and would have been playing his last world cup with Brazil had it been he did not sustain this injury.

Marcos Alonso
Marcos Alonso have been one of those impressive left back in premiership, he have been one of the vital players that fit in to Conte style of play for two seasons now. Alonso have score more goals than any other defender this season and last season, and with all this his impressive performance Spain coach decide to drop him and pick Jordi Alba and Monreal ahead of him.

Laurent Koscielny
The French captain is another big player that will miss out world cup this year due to injury. According to France coach, he said that Koscielny not in the team is very big blow to them of which happens to be true because of the kind of solidarity and leadership qualities he provide for France team in every tournament. The french man will miss out after been carried off in tears in Arsenal Semi-finals against Atletico madrid.

David Luiz
This is another big player that was left out of his country squad, Luiz have appear to be one of the best defenders Brazil have ever produce after Thiago Silva for pass years, but after falling out with Chelsea coach Conte and some little injuries he picked up of recent, Brazil were not able to pick him ahead Miranda and Silva.

Radja Nianggolan
So many people were shocked with the omission of this star player by Belgium coach Roberto Martinez. Nianggolan is undoubtedly the best midfielder Belgium have of recent  but the new Belgium coach have his own way of getting his squad together. Deports around the corner said that the player have character problem and that's what every manager do avoid in other to keep peace in his dressing room.

This player have been impressive with Monaco last season at Ligue 1 of which earn him a very fast move to big club like Liverpool as he was sign by Liverpool 4 days after they lost to Real Madrid in Kiev. Fabinho have been exceptional but with the likes of Fernadinho, Casemiro and Paulinho in the midfield, t will be very hard for coach to select him as all this players listed above where all in-form.

Leroy Sane
Premier League young player of the year Sane was left out after German Coach Joachim Low left him out of the squad and pick Brandt ahead of  him. On an interview with Low, he gave his reason why he choose Brandt over Sane ahead of FIFA world cup. Sane still have age ahead of him to feature in more than 2 to 3 world cup in some years to come. Although Sane could have been among the sensational young players to watch in Russia.

Karim Benzema
Madrid striker Benzema have been a very good asset for both Real Madrid and France, but after some rape charges rebel against him by his formal team mate Valbuena, he was on exile with France team since 2015. And he would have been a threat to other teams in this world cup..

Mauro Icardi
This is a player who really impress a lot in club side, he got 29 goals this season with his club inter milan. his form this season have been quite impressive but the Argentine coach choose an upcoming striker ahead him in this world cup. you may also want to see our previous post on why Leonel Messi needs to win the 2018 world cup

Alvaro Morata
After a poor form early this year he was dropped  out of Spanish squad. though he was in very good form before new year scoring 10 goals before then, but after those 10 goals he only score once again and this affected his place in Spain world cup squad. Not only that his wastefulness in-front of goal will even make the Spanish coach to drop him and pick Rodrigo of Valencia ahead of him.
