Players are picked as follows.

Quote:Qualifying Players:
32 pairs representing different nations selected at the discretion of the PDC.

So Barney will be most likely in, as he is one the one side part of the defending team and also most fans will care more for Barney than for Wattimena.
Well I agree more would be intrested in barney .

If Barney doesn't want to play (which would be VERY unlikely) why not Jeffrey de Zwaan?

I also think de Zwaan would be picked over Wattimena. They might wait for PL Rotterdam to see how de Zwaan stands against Cross, but it does seem that de Zwaan is being seen as a bigger name than Wattimena. But if RVB is not playing, van Gerwen already suggested on Dutch television that he would like to pair with vd Voort, as he is his best friend and that could play out really well in pairs.

At the end, I believe RVB would just pair with Michael. Easiest way for him to still get a trophy in his last year  Big Grin
The Brazil line-up has been confirmed for the World Cup Of Darts with Artur Valle confirmed to partner Diogo Portela.

Valle came through the qualifier defeating Diogo’s brother, Mario Portela in a last leg decider.
Mario himself saw off Bruno Rangel who partnered Diogo last year; but it wasn’t to be for ‘Super Mario’.

Just guessing, however unless Sedlacek and Jirkal refuse due to something I don't know now, they will be the Czech team.
The Philippines back in in place of Thailand

Philippines Return As World Cup Nations Confirmed

THE Philippines will return to compete in the World Cup of Darts following the confirmation of the 32 competing nations for June’s tournament in Hamburg.

The resurgence of players from the Philippines on the PDC Asian Tour will see the country return for the first time since 2016 as they replace Thailand in the field for the World Cup, which will be held at Hamburg’s Barclaycard Arena from June 6-9.

Reigning champions Netherlands will defend their title as they and England both bid to claim a fifth World Cup triumph, with the two nations being the only previous champions in eight stagings of the event.

Whilst the two-player teams for each nation will be confirmed in mid-May, a number of countries have already begun their qualification events.

Dyson Parody will retain his ever-present record for Gibraltar, and is joined by debutant Antony Lopez in this year's event after the pair came through a qualifier.

Diogo Portela's third World Cup appearance for Brazil will see him partnered by Artur Valle, who defeated Zé Mário Portela 6-5 in the final of their qualifier.

South Africa's Devon Petersen will be joined by the winner of the Last Man Standing qualifier in Cape Town from April 12-14. For information, email lmstournaments@gmail.com.

The China team will be determined from a qualifier to be held on May 3-4 in Beijing, with the winner of each day's play going on to represent their nation in June. To enter, players can visit this link.

It wasn't really in doubt, but this is now officially confirmed by DPNZ
Hope Barney doesn't get picked, Wattimena deserves it on merit. Barney has survived on reputation and his popularity for 5 years at least.

Darts are custom made 19g, made for me by David at Double Dee Darts. Great bloke, highly recommended.

A couple more teams confirmed

Czech Republic - Karel Sedlacek & Pavel Jirkal
Greece - John Michael & Veniamin Symeonidis

I'll update the initial post with the confirmed pairings in a minute - this won't include the pairings in SamCarters post as they have not been confirmed yet (even though chances are they will all be correct).
Just seen a post on facebook from DPA confirming Whitlock and Anderson are the Australian pairing.

Boris wasn't lying. It was just confirmed on the EADC VK page about an hour ago.
