I have a question. If players from the final 23 player list get injured during the WC, can they be replaced by players outside this list? I mean flown from their countries?

Yes, you can if it's a serious injury like what happened to Emerson from Brazil, they replaced him.

that was only allowed because it was before their first match though - after that then i think the only emergency replacements allowed is if 3 goalkeepers get injured

ESPN commentator Tommy Smyth said in the Arg-Eng match that injured players can be replaced. He was referring to Slovenia's Zahovic who cannot be replaced since he is not injured. Ofcourse, one wonders about the readiness of who ever gets called.
