Absent players who miss the World Cup due to an injury

The World Cup is a dream for all footballers, but a number of players have to miss the World Cup due to an injury and because their country is not qualified.

Which top players are absent from the World Cup in Qatar?

For England, Ben Chilwell and Reece James are not in the game anyway due to a serious injury. Kyle Walker and Kalvin Philips may also have to miss the World Cup due to an injury, although there is still good hope with them.

Belgium may miss star player Romelu Lukaku. Paul Pogba will not play for France, while Karim Benzema is still in doubt.

Also among the non-qualified countries are a number of world-class football players, who will therefore not play in Qatar.
