The World Cup begins on November 20. As it’s hard to keep up with all the news, we’ll have the whole World Cup at the latest here – as every team is announced, every injury is suffered and every key quote is spoken.

You can receive all the info on the world cup teams here and this will be updated as we get closer to the tournament.

October 11: England are ready to wear an anti-discrimination armband at the world Cup in Qatar even if it results in being sanctioned by FIFA.

The game’s world governing body has yet to give its approval to captains from nine European nations, including England and Wales, wearing OneLove armbands in a country where same-sex relations are criminalized.

The Football Association wrote to FIFA three weeks ago requesting permission to wear the armband at the World Cupbut has not yet received a response.

But we understand the FA are prepared to face a fine or any other sanction that FIFA may impose and let England captain Harry Kane wear the armband.

October 11: Manchester United striker Anthony Martial is likely to be left out of France’s World Cup squad due to concerns over his injury record, according to reports in France. He has played just 133 minutes of football this season and hasn’t played for France for a year.

October 11: Gabriel Martinelli has had a brilliant season but former Arsenal player Emmanuel Petit says it’s too early for him to go to the World Cup with Brazil: “Brazil played Tunisia and Ghana and won both games and well sure Martinelli was not in the team. I think it’s too early for him because there are more experienced players who are more effective than him.

“We are in mid-October and the list will be made in early November. He is having a good season, but is it enough to go to the World Cup?

“It’s Brazil. If he continues in the form he is in, he will be part of it but I think it’s too soon.”

October 10: Gareth Southgate has spoken about James Maddison, who was capped just once by the England manager but has had five Premier League goals and two assists this season.

“The door is open, there’s no doubt about that,” Southgate told Sky Sports. “We have a lot of good players and no matter who I choose there will always be a debate about who we don’t choose. Whoever we choose, we have to leave people out to be able to choose those, that’s the complicated thing.

“James obviously scores goals with his club and I know what Brendan Rodgers thinks of him. It’s an area of ​​the pitch where there is great competition for places and we need to make the best choices possible.

October 10: Brazil playmaker Lucas Paqueta has only one eye on the World Cup but insists on helping West Ham climb up the table.

“There is no difficulty. It’s preparation, I have to do my best for the club in order to be called up,” he added. “The priority here is to work hard, prepare and do my best. World Cup will be a consequence of my work. Yes, I’m thinking about it, but first I have to think about what I’m doing here.

Paqueta was in Brazil’s squad for the last round of friendlies in September.

October 9: Argentina striker Paulo Dybala is set to be ruled out of the World Cup after sustaining a thigh injury in Roma’s 2-1 win over Lecce. “I say [Dybala is] bad, not to say very, very bad,” Roma manager Mourinho told Dazn. “Unfortunately, it’s more very bad than [just] wrong.”

When asked if the injury would keep him out of the World Cup, Mourinho replied: “I’m not a doctor and I haven’t spoken to anyone about it, but from my experience, from what I understood while talking to Paulo, [it will be] hard.”

Dybala scored in his last appearance off the bench for Argentina against Italy.

October 9: Gareth Southgate is preparing for the ‘realistic’ prospect of losing more of his England stars to injury in the month before the World Cup in Qatar.

The mid-season tournament means the Three Lions boss has to wait impatiently to see how many of his players are fit to fly to the Middle East on November 15 until the weekend before.

Manchester City full-back Kyle Walker is already in doubt after undergoing groin surgery, and Southgate expects others may also miss out.

Indeed, a few hours after the England coach’s speech, Trent Alexander-Arnold twisted his ankle during Liverpool’s defeat at Arsenal and he is facing a scanner to determine the seriousness of the problem.

“It’s not something we can control,” Southgate said after the The Euro 2024 qualifying draw in Frankfurt on Sunday paired his side with Italy, Ukraine, North Macedonia and Malta.

“I’ve always said that I never bought into the theory that it’s better for us to play in the middle of the season than at the end, because we didn’t have a problem playing at the end. I always thought it was a bit of a myth.
