*Every team had until July 5 to register four players and have until July 19 to add two more players, who need to be ranked in the Top 10 in their country. This means that some of the national federations registered players, who have officially been announced as substitutes as their first four players because they are not in the Top 10 in their country and therefore would not have been eligible to be added on July 19 (e.g. Marie Mané appears on France's women team list instead of Ana-Maria Filip though she has been announced as substitute because she did not rank in the Top 10 in France)
