no surprises so far.

Goalkeepers: Pedro Espinha (Vitoria Guimaraes), Joaquim Silva ``Quim'' (Braga)

Defenders: Abel Xavier (Everton, England), Fernando Couto (Lazio, Italy), Dimas Teixeira (Standard Liege, Belgium)

Midfielders: Paulo Sousa (Parma, Italy), Paulo Bento (Oviedo, Spain), Rui Costa (Fiorentina, Italy), Luis Figo (Barcelona, Spain), Sergio Conceicao (Lazio, Italy), Francisco Costa ``Costinha'' (AS Monaco, France)

Forwards: Joao Pinto (Benfica), Nuno Gomes (Benfica), Sa Pinto (Real Sociedad, Spain), Pedro Resendes ``Pauleta'' (Deportivo Coruna, Spain)


Baia will be named next week, and Capucho BETTER be named next week. And where the hell is Beto and Jorge Costa?????

He didn't release any names from SCP or FCP deliberately. He doesn't want to disturb both teams players' mental concentration.

So, people like Jorge Costa, Secretário, Beto or Barbosa should only be announced afterwards. Paulinho Santos was also said to be called, but after that chin fight with Acosta...dunno

Well, we can probably deduct a couple of things from this list.

1) Barring injury, Dani is out.
2) Since Paulo Madeira was not chosen, Secretario and Vidigal are most likely in.
3) I think the final 7 should all come from that game:

Baia, Capucho, Jorge Costa, Beto, Vidigal, Rui Jorge, and Secretario.

I feel Secretario should be on the same boat as Madeira...He has not played well all year either!

But anyhow I need a report on Costinha...I haven't seen much of him but I heard he's an exceptional player....what are his strenghts and weaknesses?? Anyone?

Viva Portugal!

Madeira stinks.

I hope Bobo surprises us and calls Nelson instead of Secretario.

Costinha is a ball-winner, agressive and hard tackling. But he also has really good technique and scores quite often. He is extremely important for Monaco with his hard, sacrificing midfield work. I dont think he has any real weknesses, a real allround guy.

He isn't a 100% regular but usually, he plays.
