The 32 national teams participating in 2014 FIFA World Cup published their squads successively and the final squad of 23 players each team will be officially released on FIFA website on June 5, 2014.

Brazil team, host national team and one of the most favorite team, gains much attention. The moment Brazil 23-men squad was published, it was surprised that Kaka and Robinho, both of whom are supposed as the probable selected players, omitted from this list. Until June 2, teams have chances to make changes, but it seems that Kaka and Robinho will not appear on the list.

When talking about omitting from 2014 World Cup squad, Kaka and Robinho replied that they accepted Luiz Felipe Scolari's choice and hoped that Brazil team can perform well in this World Cup. Whatever, it was absolutely a bad news for Kaka, Robinho and their fans.

Fans are looking forward to the magnificent opening ceremony held after 24 days and show their predictions on who will win 2014 World Cup and if there will be a new World Cup winner. During this waiting period, let's have a happy review on the last World Cup highlights, which left deep impression on us.

2010 World Cup 4 Highlights

In 2010 World Cup, we witnessed too many excited, moved and sad moments and I conclude the following 4 highlights which were considered as the most memorable scenes.

1.       Jong's Tears

On June 16, 2010, 2:30 AM, the second match of G group: Brazil against North Korea was started. The moment national anthems of these two countries were played, the North Korean striker, Jong Tae Se was seemed to be very excited and wept. In the match, Jong Tae Se performed very strong and powerful. Even though North Korean lost the game because of the overmatched opponent, fans were completely shocked by their sportsmanship that they never gave up.

2.       Henry's Back

As anticipated, Zidane didn't appear on the field so that French and fans put their hopes on Henry, the French team leader. But, 2010 World Cup is proved to be the most depressed World Cup for French. They even didn't get through group match for they just got 1 point. And Henry’s sad back became the most unforgettable moments for fans.

3.       Messi's Amazing Skills

The third match of B group, Argentina vs. South Korea was played on June 17, 2010. In this match, Argentina defeated South Korea with a comprehensive victory: 4-1. Although Messi didn't score any goal, he showed us his brilliant skills while he passed by 6 South Korean players successively and reminded fans of Manadora in his heyday.

4.       Championship - Spain

In my mind, the most impressive highlight in World Cup 2010 is the Final, Spain vs. Netherland, both of whom had never won World Cup in history. Maybe they took this match too important so that they presented very carefully in the match time and entered into a deadlock. Time flied and the score kept 0-0 till match time was over. In the overtime, Spain midfielder Iniesta scored one goal to lead Spain to win 2010 World Cup and claimed their first World Cup title.
