Paulo Dybala

Dybala suffered a serious hamstring injury, which will keep him out of the 2022 World Cup. This season he has scored 7 goals and provided 2 assists in 11 appearances for Roma in all competitions.

N’Golo Kantor

The France midfield ace is also currently out with a hamstring problem. He was instrumental in France’s return to the World Cup in 2018. Therefore, losing him to injury will be a bitter pill for France to swallow before the World Cup.

Ronaldo Araujo

Araujo is currently out due to long-term injuries. He will certainly miss out on the World Cup, which could leave his country Uruguay vulnerable and lacking options at the back.


The Portugal international suffered a serious injury against Manchester City earlier this month. Therefore, he will not be selected for Portugal’s squad for this year’s World Cup.

Other notable absentees include Georginio Wijanldum and Pedro Neto.
