World Cup 2022: Haaland, Salah and Co. – these stars are missing at the World Cup in Qatar

It really is a shame that Atlético Madrid’s Jan Oblak is absent from the World Cup with Slovenia – but the absence of Gianluigi Donnarumma and European champions Italy certainly made even bigger waves.

Donnarumma was even voted Player of the Tournament at Euro 2020, having played a pivotal role in the Squadra Azzurra’s road to victory.

But even the Paris Saint-Germain keeper couldn’t prevent Italy from surprisingly losing to North Macedonia in the play-offs for the World Cup in Qatar.

After all: At only 23 years of age, Donnarumma will certainly have several more opportunities to play a World Cup.
