    World Cup squads announced

    Those announced today:

    Italy:

    Goalkeepers: Buffon (Juventus), Peruzzi (Lazio), Amelia (Livorno)

    Defenders: Zambrotta (Juventus), Nesta (Milan), Cannavaro (Juventus), Grosso (Palermo), Zaccardo (Palermo), Barzagli (Palermo), Materazzi (Inter), Oddo (Lazio)

    Midfielders: Camoranesi (Juventus), Pirlo (Milan), Gattuso (Milan), De Rossi (Roma), Perrotta (Roma), Barone (Palermo)

    Attackers: Totti (Roma), Toni (Fiorentina), Gilardino (Milan), Del Piero (Juventus), Inzaghi (Milan), Iaquinta (Udinese)


    Not a bad squad here, although the decision to select Materazzi was more of a token Inter slection, unless he is there as the player so everybody can blame when he hacks down Ronaldino in the Semi Final that gives away the free kick/penalty that gets Italy knocked out of the World Cup or gives away a comical own goal and results in similar fashion for Italy

    Good to see Peter Pan wasn't there (Cassano), not only wasn't not getting any game time (or enough) at Real Madrid, the fact that I think he and Totti want to have brawl (well they are not friends) is a good thing for team harmony.

    Brazil:

    Goalkeepers: Dida (AC Milan), Julio Cesar (Inter), Rogerio Ceni (San Paolo)
    Defenders: Cafu (AC Milan), Cicinho (Real Madrid), Roberto Carlos (Real Madrid), Gilberto (Hertha Berlin), Juan (Bayer Leverkusen), Lucio (Bayern Munich), Luisao (Benfica), Cris (Lyon)
    Midfielders: Emerson (Juventus), Edmilson (Barcelona), Zé Roberto (Bayern Munich), Gilberto Silva (Arsenal), Juninho Pernambucano (Lyon), Ricardinho (Corinthians), Kakŕ (AC Milan), Ronaldinho Gaucho (Barcelona)
    Strikers: Ronaldo (Real Madrid), Robinho (Real Madrid), Adriano (Inter), Fred (Lyon)


    Ricardinho surprised me a little bit, aalthough I have to admit that Carlos Alberto Parreira has seen him play more then I have lately so he must be going ok at Santos, and Fred was bit of a bolter, and I think Ceni is there for the penalty shoot-out (not for saving but for scoring them). I hope Adriano can refind his form and I am happy Gilberto Silva is there as well.

    Portugal:

    Goalkeepers: Ricardo (Sporting Lisbon), Quim (Benfica), Bruno Vale (Estrela Amadora)
    Defenders: Paulo Ferreira (Chelsea), Miguel (Valencia), Ricardo Carvalho (Chelsea), Fernando Meira (Stuttgart), Caneira (Sporting Lisbon), Ricardo Costa (Porto), Nuno Valente (Everton)
    Midfielders: Petit (Benfica), Costinha (Dynamo Moscow), Tiago (Lyon), Maniche (Chelsea), Hugo Viana (Valencia), Deco (Barcelona), Figo (Inter)
    Srtikers: Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United), Simao (Benfica), Boa Morte (Fulham), Pauleta (Paris SG), Nuno Gomes (Benfica), Helder Postiga (St. Etienne)


    Remember Postiga and Viana? Two guys for who completely failed to make it in England (although that was the manager's fault in the case of Postiga and probably for Viana), and Caneria a flop at Valencia which forced him to go on loan to Sporting. Thought maybe Joao Moutinho would be in there, unless he is injured or out of form?

    Argentina:

    Abbondanzieri, Leo Franco, Ustari, Coloccini, Cufré, Ayala, Gabriel Milito, Sorin, Heinze, Burdisso, Scaloni, Luis González, Maxi Rodríguez, Cambiasso, Mascherano, Aimar, Riquelme, Palacio, Crespo, Tevez, Messi, Saviola, Cruz

    Little bit surprised about Burdisso TBH, with only 16 games in the league, and five of them as a sub, he hasn't that amount of games to convinces us what he is worth. Probably as depth more then anything, although he has been shown a red card in both the league and Coppa Italia. I am happy with Cruz being in there and I hope Messi isn't too underdone.

    Serbia & Montenegro:

    Dragoslav Jevric (Anakaraspor), Oliver Kovacevic (CSKA Sofia), Vladimir Stojkovic (Nantes); Goran Gavrancic (Dinamo Kiev), Dusan Basta (Red Star Belgrade), Ivica Dragutinovic (Seville), Nemanja Vidic (Manchester United), Mladen Krstajic (Schalke 04), Nenad Djordjevic (Partizan Belgrade), Milan Dudic (Red Star Belgrade); Dejan Stankovic (Inter), Igor Duljaj (Shakhtar Donetsk), Predrag Djordjevic (Olympiakos), Ognjen Koroman (Portsmouth), Sasa Ilic (Galatasaray), Albert Nadj (Partizan Belgrade) Danijel Ljuboja (Stuttgart), Zvonimir Vukic (Partizan Belgrade) Ivan Ergic (Basel); Mateja Kezman (Atletico Madrid), Nikola Zigic (Red Star Belgrade), Savo Milosevic (Osasuna), Mirko Vucinic (Lecce).

    Czech Republic:

    Goalkeepers: Jaromir Blazek (Sparta Prague), Petr Cech (Chelsea), Antonin Kinsky (Saturn Ramenskoye)

    Defenders: Zdenek Grygera (Ajax Amsterdam), Marek Jankulovski (AC Milan), Martin Jiranek (Spartak Moscow), Radoslav Kovac (Spartak Moscow), Pavel Mares (Zenit St Petersburg), David Rozehnal (Paris St Germain), Tomas Ujfalusi (Fiorentina)

    Midfielders: Tomas Galasek (Ajax Amsterdam), David Jarolim (Hamburg SV), Pavel Nedved (Juventus), Jaroslav Plasil (Monaco), Karel Poborsky (Ceske Budejovice), Jan Polak (Nuremberg), Tomas Rosicky (Borussia Dortmund), Vladimir Smicer (Girondins Bordeaux)

    Forwards: Milan Baros (Aston Villa), Marek Heinz (Galatasaray), Jan Koller (Borussia Dortmund), Vratislav Lokvenc (Red Bull Salzburg), Jiri Stajner (Hanover 96)


    Karel Poborsky must surely be getting on now?

    Defenders: Arne Friedrich (Hertha Berlin), Robert Huth (Chelsea), Marcell Jansen (Borussia Monchengladbach), Per Mertesacker (Hannover), Christoph Metzelder (Borussia Dortmund), Philipp Lahm (Bayern Munich), Jens Nowotny (Bayer Leverkusen).

    Fowards: Miroslav Klose (Werder Bremen), Lukas Podolski (FC Cologne), Mike Hanke (VfL Wolfsburg), Oliver Neuville (Borussia Monchengladbach), Gerald Asamoah (Schalke 04).


    Holland:

    Keepers: Edwin van der Sar (Manchester United), Maarten Stekelenburg (Ajax), Henk Timmer (AZ Alkmaar).

    Defenders: Khalid Boulahrouz (Hamburg SV), Giovanni van Bronckhorst (Barcelona), Tim de Cler (AZ Alkmaar), Kew Jaliens (AZ Alkmaar), Jan Kromkamp (Liverpool), Joris Mathijsen (AZ Alkmaar), Andre Ooijer (PSV Eindhoven), Johnny Heitinga (Ajax).

    No Andres D'Alessandro in the Argentina squad?!?!? Well, there's a stupid decision. He's on fire at the moment, who cares if he plays for a 'small' club?

    Roy Miller dropped.

    Costa Rica squad

    Apparently, he was told he was to go by 1 May, but that's now changed. Awful for Glimt as well - although he's a good player and lifts the squad, we need the money we can get from selling him, because we've got an equity of -£500,000. Not good.

    I half expected Javier Zanetti to be there, I know he isn't captain, but I would have thought expereince would have got him instead of bench warmer Nicolas Burdisso.

    Dunno really, just praying for anything - if we keep having a negative equity, it's down to Division 2.

    Not too bad playing in Division 1, though, at least we're winning games...

    Whose he going to replace? Had an awful couple of years at VFL Wolfsburg also, played well for Pompey but Jose Pekerman has travelled quite a bit to Germany to watch him. His development from the boy wonder at River Plate to the tinted hair tart is not good enough. There is no way anyone could suggest his a better player at this moment in time than Pablo Aimar (a very similar player to Andres) and Juan Roman Riquelme, two players he would be competing against. Don't think small club has anything to do with it, seen in selection of West Ham's on loan Argentina Lionel Scaloni.

    Elsewhere looks a pretty strange team choice by Peckerman, no Javier Zanetti, Walter Samuel or even Diego Milito, 'The Gardner' Julio Cruz and Lionel Scaloni travel instead.

    Walter Samuel was a strange one, I think Cruz got in after scoring 21 goals for Inter and playing well enough to get a new contract (there was speculation last season he was goin to go to his former Italian club Bolonga before they went down), and has probably been more reliable then Adriano who is more interesting in having a sulk and having fights with Veron.

    And since when has Leo Messi has been a forward as listed on Eurosport News?

    Since he began his career as a centre forward for the Barcelona youth teams, also don’t forget he plays up front for Barca alternating from a central position (Eto’s) to the right hand side. The official Barcelona website tend to agree as well, listing Messi as a forward.

    sounds like a sensible decision to me, hes a lightweight.
