2022 World Cup squad list tracker: France team missing injured Kante, Pogba; Deadline dates for USMNT, England

The 2022 FIFA World Cup begins on Nov. 20 in what will be the first winter edition in the history of the competition. The best players in the world will take center stage in Qatar with the action running through the final on Dec. 18. You can watch all of the World Cup live on fuboTV (Try for free). 

Due to the unusual nature of a tournament taking place in the middle of the club season, squads will now consist of 26 players as opposed to 23. Each team privately submitted a pre-list consisting of 35 to 55 players in October and they will have until Nov. 14 at 1 p.m. ET to reveal the full 26-man squad. 

Coaches can adjust who is going right up until a couple of days before the start of the World Cup in the event of last-minute injuries. Thierry Henry and Jamie Carragher already called the week-plus ramp-up period between the pause of the club season to the opener in Qatar an “absolute disgrace.”

As the squads for the competition roll in, this is your one stop shop for who’s going to the tournament.
