A lot of players will not participate in this year FIFA world cup, after their nation’s failed to secure a spot in the tournament group stages. So because of that, I decided to put up this article to display the starting XI of some star players that won’t feature in the forthcoming FIFA world cup competition.
Goal keeper – Atletico Madrid and Slovenia goal keeper Jan Oblak, will not participate in the forthcoming coming FIFA world cup tournament after his nation failed to book a spot in the competition knocked out stage.
Defenders – David Alaba would be pairing with Bonucci at the center back position, after Italy and Austria failed to qualify the group stage of the prestigious tournament. Robertson and Juan Cuadrado will be occupying the two full back positions, following Scotland and Colombia failure to secure a spot in the competition group stages.
Midfielders – Kessie, Martin Odegaard and Verratti.
Attackers – Mohamed Salah, Erling Haaland and Riyad Mahrez on the other hand, will be leading the attacking frontline after their respective nations failed to qualify to the group stage of the competition. See the photo below for the names of players that made it to the bench (substitutes).
