"Big names have been forced to miss out, with the likes of Colombia's Radamel Falcao unfortunately failing to regain fitness and Landon Donovan of the US not quite making the grade."
Geneva, June 6 - All 32 World Cup teams have been finalized one week before the 2014 Brazil World Cup, soccer's world governing body FIFA announced on its web site.

The final selections of the 32 coaches have been decided and officially verified, revealing the 736 players who will potentially feature during the June 12 - July 13 event, reported Xinhua.

All the initial provisional squads have been trimmed down, injuries weighed up and fitness assessed as the teams go through their final preparations ahead of the big kick-off in Sao Paulo.

Big names have been forced to miss out, with the likes of Colombia's Radamel Falcao unfortunately failing to regain fitness and Landon Donovan of the US not quite making the grade.

Even so, there are tons of big names on their way, with nine of Real Madrid's victorious starting line-up from last month's UEFA Champions League final making the trip to Brazil, and many more star attractions preparing to line up.
