Hope this can be a thread for all World Cup Squads

Provisional List of not more than 35 (increased from 30 to 35) expected not later than May 14

Final List of 23 submission due for June 4 latest

Quote:
FIFA released an official media statement on February 8 confirming that provisional squad lists – which have increased in size from 30 to 35 players – are required to be submitted by May 14, with their final 23-man squad list to be finalised on June 4 at the latest.
"The Organising Committee for FIFA Competitions was presented with the latest developments in the preparations for the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia, including an overview of the event’s 12 stadiums, the upcoming Team Workshop in Sochi (27-28 February) and the FIFA Congress (13 June).
"As a result of feedback from the coaches who attended the Team Seminar held around the Final Draw, the Organising Committee for FIFA Competitions has agreed to increase the number of players included in the release list from no more than 30 to up to 35. In addition, a release list may only be published by the FIFA general secretariat with the explicit permission of the respective participating member association. These amendments to article 44, paragraphs 1 and 3, of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Regulations are still subject to approval by the FIFA Council at its next meeting, scheduled to be held in Bogota, Colombia, on 16 March.
"As confirmed by the FIFA Council in January 2017, the deadline for the participating member associations to submit their release lists is 14 May 2018, while the submission of the final list of 23 players is due on 4 June 2018."

What's the point in having teams submit the provisional squad list?

I think it gives everyone time to prepare especially FIFA's sponsors, the media, even the match officials actually study the player's idiosyncrasies on the pitch (like the divers, complainers, e.t.c..).

The 23 man deadline of June 4th doesn't give people enough time.

Personally, I think they should just get rid of these lists and only focus on the game day starting 11 and the bench.
With a coach able to call on any eligible player for each game.
Now that would make things more interesting. :)

Rohr would not have to worry too much about which goalie he starts as he would have the whole NPFL and the diaspora to choose from for a game. Not a good practice but sometimes, surprises are your best weapon especially against teams like Germany that leave not stone unturned in their opponent scouting.

Do you actually follow football? How is that supposed to work in many countries where the season ends in May?

Bros, I agree with you. I think it's a good idea. Coaches should be able to call-up any player they want at anytime and FIFA should ONLY be concerned with the game-day name of players (starters and reserves). This will give nations a lot of flexibility in dealing with injuries at least.

No; but a team should be able to replace a player at anytime as considered necessary - regardless of list - especially when injuries occur. The list as mandated by FIFA, restricts a team from successfully managing its players' injuries or tactical changes.

What exactly does this have to do with it? The UEFA CL ends in May.
Read my post again.

The important list, is the game day list!
What happens before the game should be up to the individual teams, not FIFA.
FIFA should only try to guide league scheduling in order to get fresh players for the World cup as leagues and teams cannot be fully trusted to manage this part, especially after the 2002 WC.

KPOM!
Well, if a team can afford to send 300 players to Russia and the host has no qualms with it, then what's the problem?

You only need to play 7 games and you don't even have to win them all. Just the important ones.
Heck, you don't even have to win any game in open play.
You could draw all your games as long as you win your penas all the way to the trophy. :D

Dude, it is very difficult for any team to advance in the group stage at the World Cup with 3 draws! So, yes, you do need to win a game!

Teams can name no more than 35 players in the provisional list. In fact, a team may choose not to name. France is not likely to name a provisional list but will name a final list on May 15.

It's very difficult as you said but not impossible. You know 3 draws = draw. If the top team gets maximum points, the 3 others can get 3 points each with the best GD qualifying. In 1982, Italy qualified for the next round with 3 draws.

The guy is ageless. Three certainties in life: death, taxes, and crucial Tim Cahill headed goals. It was his extra time header that qualified Australia for the WC with a dramatic victory in the play-off against Syria:

Inaction has been considered a grave danger, but 'misaction' is a greater evil. With inaction, a known problem grows in magnitude; however, with misaction a known problem morphs into an unspecified number of known and unknown derivatives of the initial problem. With inaction you are left with a gargantuan disaster, but with misaction you are left with an untold variety of gargantuan disasters. Act swiftly, but more importantly do not respond inappropriately. Awon musings lati enu tbite.
