As at every World Cup, a list of stars who will miss this World Cup due to injury has been collected. At first, it was assumed that their number would be much less, due to the special calendar of the World Cup in Qatar, but the picture has not changed much.
First of all, we should mention France national team. At the last moment, Christopher Nkunku was excluded from the team due to an injury. It has also been known for a long time that the Roosters will be missing 2018 world champions Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante in one part of the field and Presnel Kimpembe in the defensive line. There was a chance that Raphael Varane would be on this list, but thankfully the Manchester centre-back has recovered and is in the squad.

Portugal national team will be missing Pedro Neto and Diogo Jota.
Senegal national team has the biggest loss, they will be missing their main leader and main hope, Sadio Mane.
