    I’d take Sagna over Boumsong at any position on the field 🙂

    Hopefully it is Diarra or Toulalan in the middle for France alongside Vieira.

    Betsy, I added the Holland squad late last night, so it’s on the first page and all you have do is scroll down.

    Alex (I’m not calling you Tomas Rose-hickey), there just wasn’t room for either of them. Clichy is third on the totem pole behind Abidal and Evra, although I guess you could argue that Clichy should be in the team over Abidal. Sagna was never going to get in the team with Sagnol already there.

    why not just add the holland team for sake of completion. not everyone knows that the team was announced a week or two prior. same goes for the other nations that announced their 23-man squads early.
