World Cup rosters annnounced worldwide, news and notes

Tuesday was a big day around the soccer world. Lots of 30-man rosters — and a couple 23-man lineups — were announced by national team coaches. There were also lots of big names not called up for the biggest tournament in the world. Here’s a good roundup for all the countries.

No Ronaldinho and Pato for Brazil. France said ‘no thanks’ to Karim Benzema and Patrick Vieira. No Juan Roman Riquelme for Argentina, Zanetti and Cambiasso were left out by Maradona too. Totti didn’t get the call for Italy.

Are you a little disappointed some of the recognizable names won’t be there? Or are you like me, and won’t care once the games get going?

Here’s your video entertainment.

1. The Showboat feature that never fails to entertain you guys.

2. You also can’t go wrong with World Cup promos. I love ’em all.
