    LM – Salomon Kalou
    LCDM – Mahamadou Diarra
    RCDM – Michael Essein
    CF – Didier Drogba
    ST – Samuel Eto’o* - Captain

    Very strong sides, would love it if these sides were picked and clashed in a little tournament. Overall its close between Europe & South America for which continent has the better side, but i'd give it to Europe slightly since defensively they look more powerful.

    Personally I don't think Eurpoe would be able to compete, maybe Europe but definately not Eurpoe.

    There is no way in hell that Adriano is should be in there for the South American team and would swap Ballack for Robben at the very least and Ruud van Nistelrooy should be there on the basis of his form for Real Madrid ATM.

    Robinho for all his talent and potential is a little bit overhyped for mine.

    i would suggest Jefferson Farfan in the South American squad but i cant see many agreeing even though he'll be one of the best players in the world in the world in five years...

    I expected Farfan to be sold IMO after last season.

    he was wanted by Portsmouth, Newcastle and half of the German League.
    He was talked into staying until the right club comes along and wants him then PSV wont stand in his way.
    Hes an incredible player now i cant wait to see how he goes when hes playing with a lot better players than he is currently...

    I'm a big fan of Ronaldo but i think Jaoqiun at his best is a better winger than him, after all its only this season Ronaldo has really shown very good consistency since United signed him for Sporting.

    I know Adriano has been out of sorts since the World, but when i picked the sides i wanted to base it not solely on current form, but a mixture of that and overall career performances and obviously Adriano is good enough to come out of his problems ATM & cause defenders hell again.

    Why would you want to swap Robben & Ballack wouldn't robben be more effective on the wing than Ballack?, on Ruud yea his form has been superb but couldn't look last Henry, Shevy, Wazza & Torres.

    Chief poseur as the only forward and Gerrard?!?

    Why don't you pick players who can actually turn up for their own country first.

    Henry playing as the only foward, its debatable but he's definately good at it, he does it for the gunners & France most of time and very well too. Plus Stevie G has to be in for me..

    What games do you watch? Chief poseur is decidedly average for France, particularly when he's on his own up front and supposedly has a sulk when he's playing up front on his own for France (but then he doesn't like playing with Trezeguet either apparently).
