Welcome to Bleacher Report's countdown of 50 players who could end up missing the 2014 FIFA World Cup this summer.
You've heard all about the injuries so we've tried to steer clear of those. Instead, we'll be focusing on players at risk of missing their nation's 23-man cut due to poor form or individual battles for certain positions.
As such, the likes of Kevin Strootman, Theo Walcott and Robbie Kruse—who have all torn their ACLs in recent months, and therefore will definitely miss the finals—are not included on this list.
Enjoy the selection, make note of the names and check those final cuts come May to see who made it in!
