The Missing Stars At The World Cup

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Gareth Bale, Radamel Falcao and Carlos Tevez are just some of the ingredients that will be missing from this year's World Cup showpiece.

Ibrahimovic's Sweden failed to qualify after they were beaten at home by Portugal in a two-legged qualification match. 'Ibra' went on to claim that, "A world cup without me is not worth watching!"

Bale and Aaron Ramsey were unable to help the Welsh team progress from a tough group that was conquered by Belgium. They have never played in a World Cup before and will be hoping for a spot in the next tournament.

Radamel Facao was unfortunate, having helped his Columbian team qualify for a spot in Group C. He succumbed to injury in January and seemed to be recovering well but unfortunately the World Cup came too early for him and then pulled out of the squad.

Argentina coach, Alejandro Sabella, has decided to exclude Carlos Tevez from his final World Cup squad, despite having a pretty good season with Italian champions, Juventus this season. This could prove to be a very costly decision by the Argentine coach.

Are these players going to be missed in Brazil? Or do you think there will be new players filling up these players' shoes and providing us with the entertainment?
