You flop XI so far

Chalkias

vd Wiel - S. Ward - Sivok - Mathijsen - Holebas / Boenisch

Van Bommel - J. Poulsen

Robben - Kerzhakov - Ronaldo

Ronaldo has a chance to redeem himself against (for the last 6 months) non footballer vd Wiel

van Persie has to be in the team some where. He scored one but missed a lot of chances.

Too early to give that team. I'll give mine when the group stages are over. Ronaldo is a front runner though.

Almost the same as your but I would replace Chalkias with Cech, you dont expect such mistakes from a goalie of his calibre. Lucky for him it was not as costly as the mistake against Turkey in 2008.
As for the LB id definitly pick Holebas in front of Boenisch. Dont know about J. Poulsen though. Rommedahl could be in the list as well. He didnt do anything and his replacement yesterday did more in a few minutes than Dennis through the two games.

He was great against Greece. Van der Wiel on the other hand was crap in both games.

Kadlec on the left was far worse than Gebre Selassie in the first game against the Russians. No surprise he didn;t make it to the starting line-up for the Greece game.

I think Kerzhakov has been great so far. Runs like a madman opening up spaces for himself and, more importantly, his teammates.

His work rate has been great, but his finishing has been abysmal. It was mentioned that he broke the record for most attempts in a game without hitting the target

Given has been quiet shite as well, especially when you consider the fact that he has built his reputation as a great shot stopper.

It's a bit harsh to say Eriksen flopped imo. There were expectations of course, and he hasn't been abble to stand out for Denmark, but it has as much to do with the system as anything, he's been more a cog in the machinery and as such hasn't done poorly. He would see a lot more of the ball if he played where Pirlo does for Italy, for example. Not saying he should.

Left back is a position with many flops apparently. Willems and Simon Poulsen have been poor as well.

Team selected based on perceived skill vs level of fail ratio.

Cech
Van Der Wiel - Dunne - Mathijsen - Coentrao
Van Bommel - Karagounis
Eriksen
Robben - Balotelli (Samaras) - Toivonen (Afellay/Ronaldo)

Who's perception, the players' own?

Brutal, Eriksen has been holding up the ball, distributing it decently, etc., which is enough for a passing grade. Not that I wouldn't have liked to see him being more active.

Still Learning's perception. Only the best is good enough for me.

I could probably move some of the left wing forwards into Eriksen's position though. Ribery probably deserves a spot as well.

Coentrao has been superb, especially when you consider he plays on the same side of the field as "I won't lift a toe to defend" Ronaldo.
