    neymarjumpWorld Cup rosters are starting to come out left and right, with some managers opting to name maximum-size 30-man preliminary rosters, while others are going straight to a final group of 23 ahead of final friendlies, training camps and preparations. Coaches have until June 2 to trim their rosters or make substitutions, so the following is highly subject to change, but these are the rosters that have been announced thus far (MLS players in bold).
