Share |

It's always interesting to see the age of some players at the World Cup. One of the most famous cases for the next edition is England player Theo Walcott. With 17, he will be the youngest player in the tournament and could also become the youngest to score if he finds the net in Germany.

In the other hand, Tunisia goalkeeper Ali Boumnijel, 40, will be the fifth oldest player to participate after Roger Milla of Cameroon, Pat Jennings of Northern Ireland, Peter Shilton of England and Dino Zoff of Italy.

Football's world governing body Fifa yesterday released the official squad lists for all 32 World Cup nations.

Each team registered 23 players for the tournament in Germany, making 736 players eligible to play at soccer's premier event, which kicks off on 9 June in Munich. The squad lists were released on Fifa's World Cup website, with names, positions and shirt numbers for all the players.
