The ten stars whose place in their country’s World Cup squad is under threat.
10. Sandro (Brazil)
The Tottenham enforcer was a regular in the Brazil squad before suffering a cruciate ligament injury in January 2013. He returned to fitness last summer but this season has been interrupted by a series of muscle complaints. Sandro is now fit but with just two more friendlies before the tournament, it may be too late for him to force his way into Luiz Felipe Scolari’s squad.
