Marc Wilmots names 23-man Belgium squad for World Cup 2014

Belgium coach Marc Wilmots has named his 23-man squad for World Cup 2014, a day after the FIFA deadline for the final roster adjustments.

The majority of the squad had been known for a couple of weeks, but Wilmots had delayed in naming his third goalkeeper, waiting on the fitness of Koen Casteels. Ultimately, it was determined Casteels was not fit enough to travel with the squad, and was replaced by Sammy Bossut.

Wilmots’ men will be playing in Group H alongside Russia, South Korea, and Algeria.

Goalkeepers: Sammy Bossut (Zulte Waregem, Belgium), Thibaut Courtois (Atlético Madrid, Spain), Simon Mignolet (Liverpool, England)

Defenders: Toby Alderweireld (Atlético Madrid, Spain), Laurent Ciman (Standard Liege, Belgium), Vincent Kompany (Manchester City, England), Nicolas Lombaerts (Zenit, Russia), Daniel Van Buyten (Bayern Munich, Germany), Anthony Vanden Borre (Anderlecht, Belgium), Thomas Vermaelen (Arsenal, England), Jan Vertonghen (Tottenham, England).

Midfielders: Nacer Chadli (Tottenham, England), Steven Defour (Porto, Portugal), Moussa Dembélé (Tottenham, England), Marouane Fellaini (Manchester United, England), Axel Witsel (Zenit, Russia).

Forwards: Kevin De Bruyne (Wolfsburg, Germany), Eden Hazard (Chelsea, England), Adnan Januzaj (Manchester United, England), Romelu Lukaku (Everton, England), Dries Mertens (Napoli), Kevin Mirallas (Everton, England), Divock Origi (Lille, France)

Hmmm. Are FIFA okay with late submissions? I thought there was a case in the AFC where a team (Vietnam? Somewhere else in Southeast Asia?) was disqualified from participating after submitting their lineup late.

Yeah, a number of SEA clubs have also been thrown out of the Champions League for making late submissions.

Perhaps this is a case of poor wording, with Belgium providing the list to FIFA but only publicly announcing the 23 squad a day after??
Here is what Wikipedia has on the squad make-up.

FIFA are supposed to announce all the squads on their website on June 5.

In other news, that 5-1 win over Luxembourg has been demoted from an official friendly to a practice match because 7 substitutions had been used.

Makes a bit more sense now, thanks.

Does that mean someone could make their debut in a game like this and then switch country?

You can actually play in official frendlies and still switch countries. Diego Costa played two frendlies for Brazil but because he didn't play in the Confederation Cup, he never played a competitive game and so was able to switch to Spain. He's not actually played a competitive game for Spain yet either so theoretically he could switch back to Brazil if he wanted.

Thiago Motta even played for Brazil in the 2003 CONCACAF Championship and still went on to play for Italy.

That is an odd one indeed. Brazil sent their u-23 team to the tournament but their matches counted as full internationals as this was a continental championship.

Impressive to see Nadson's name in there too alongside others that have gone on to considerably bigger and better things, that must have been right around the time he signed for Suwon as it was the summer of 2003 he joined up at the Bluewings. He had bags of talent, I think he ended up blaming the Suwon medical staff for botching his treatment and recovery from a knee injury for effectively ruining what should have been a very, very good career.

U.S. scrimmage vs. Belgium canceled

Citing traffic concerns, Belgium and the United States agreed to cancel their planned scrimmage Thursday morning at the U.S. base in the Barra Funda district of Sao Paulo.

Belgium is staying at the Paradise Golf & Lake Resort in Mogi das Cruzes, 40 miles east of Sao Paulo.

Before the U.S. Soccer Federation announced the cancellation Wednesday afternoon, Belgium Coach Marc Wilmots told the Associated Press that he “will not take the risk to go to Sao Paulo, looking at the possibility of a strike and traffic jams. I don’t want to sit in a bus for five hours.”

Sao Paulo’s notorious traffic jams have been compounded by subway strikes. Although Thursday is a national holiday, marking the opening day of the World Cup, transportation is a problem every day of the week...
