The 2018 World Cup is creeping closer, and with nations compelled to release their provisional rosters by FIFA, the picture of who will be taking part in Russia is starting to come into focus. 

Nations are not required to submit their final rosters until the June 4 deadline, but some have eschewed the preliminary roster process and instead publicized just 23-man squads they will take to the showpiece event. Those rosters are not locked in yet, and changes can be made in the event of injuries, but in the meantime, here is who is slated to go to Russia. 

This will continue to be updated as nations cut down from their preliminary rosters and make their final decisions ahead of the submission deadline:
