2014 World Cup provisional squads statistics

You might remember the 2010 edition. This year I wasn't so sure about doing this, but I've been asked by a secondary school math teacher to provide a helping hand for the statistics module about to start. How could I refuse? :)

Caps, goals, ages are as of 16 May 2014. Same goes for players' clubs - based on FIFA's official list.

346 clubs have in the provisional list ( thank you PDFSplit! and Online OCR).

England are again the most represented league base, with 130 players plying their trade in one of the English leagues. Next are Germany and Italy (both 102), Spain (80) and France (63).
