While 13 players from the Real Madrid squad look set to take part in Brazil, there are also 10 Los Blancos men who will be unfortunately missing at the World Cup.
The Unlucky Ones
Diego Lopez (Spain): Despite holding down the goalkeeper position for Real Madrid's La Liga campaign, Lopez has been edged out of the Spain squad by teammate and national captain Iker Casillas, Manchester United's David de Gea and Napoli's Pepe Reina.
Jesus Fernandez (Spain): Since switching to Real Madrid from Numancia in 2010, Jesus has made just two league appearances per ESPN FC and is a long way off from national selection.
Alvaro Arbeloa (Spain): After being a regular for Spain under Vicente del Bosque, Arbeloa has watched Cesar Azpilicueta, Daniel Carvajal and Juanfran move ahead of him in the right-back pecking order this season.
Nacho (Spain): Although he's a very versatile defender, Nacho is still in the infancy of his career and isn't pushing for Spain selection after making just 12 league appearances in 2013-14, per WhoScored.com.
Asier Illarramendi (Spain): Illarramendi still hasn't secured his place in the Real Madrid side since moving to the capital from Real Sociedad at the beginning of the season. He's also got a plethora of Spanish midfield stars to compete with, too.
Isco (Spain): After an impressive debut season at Real Madrid, Isco is one of the more unfortunate players to miss out on selection for Spain's World Cup squad. Only a lack of experience and the nation's star-studded midfield stocks counted against him.
Gareth Bale (Wales): It's extremely disappointing that Bale is highly unlikely to ever appear at a World Cup. Despite being one of the planet's finest players, it's difficult to see Wales reaching the World Cup finals during Bale's career.
Casemiro (Brazil): The 22-year-old Casemiro made just two starts for Real Madrid in 2013-14, per WhoScored.com, meaning it was highly unlikely he'd force his way into the Brazilian squad for this year's World Cup.
Alvaro Morata (Spain): He didn't make the cut this time, but it's likely that Morata will represent his country at the senior level at some point during his career provided the young attacker continues on his current trajectory.
Jese (Spain): Another young Spaniard set to miss out on the World Cup, Jese is currently sidelined with a serious knee injury, as reported by Sky Sports.
