FIFA awaits final squad submissions by June 2 ahead of World CupLuiz Felipe Scolari named his 23 last week
Global governing body FIFA has confirmed that all 32 managers have submitted their provisional World Cup squads ahead of the final announcement on June 5, before of the tournament gets underway in Sao Paulo on June 12.
June 2 will see each country declare their preferred group of 23 players to FIFA before an official media reveal three days later on the organisation's website.
The opening fixture will pit hosts Brazil against Croatia in Group A, the first of 64 international games this summer.
Reports coming out of Brazil suggest that protests against working conditions have already started in the area that will host the opening game, although it is believed that no aggression will be directed at any facet of the World Cup itself.
