    So this one-man team led by Luis Suárez...

    Why does Mario Balotelli appear to be the face of Italy in the same way Messi, Neymar and Ronaldo are for their countries? Have I missed something or is it because of that one game against Germany at the Euros? Would've thought Pirlo or Buffon would be more deserving.

    Remember when Cannavaro won World Player of the Year? Would have Pirlo as face of the team.

    Good. Wouldn't have surprised me if Woy ended up playing him in place of Sterling. Now we should end up with a front four of Sterling, Lallana, Rooney and Sturridge. Personally, I'd go for Barkley ahead of Rooney on current form, but that isn't going to happen. Barkley as super-sub.

    Have to say I don't get the Barkley over-reaction based on those friendlies - gave the ball away so often, and in the conditions we're going to encounter that's criminal.

    I'm an Everton fan though, so I'm hugely biased, and have been keen on Barkley getting a go for months. He just has that special something about him that could win us games. Am content with him being an impact sub for now though.
