Here are the rules, you pick 23 names (3 being goalkeepers) and the other 20 names you will pick
2 Right Back, 2 Left Back, 4 Central Defenders, 2 DMs, 2 Volantes (middlefielders who are not strictly defensive neither offensive), 2 offensive Mids, and 4 fowards.
So pick now the 2 Right Backs!

1 - Cafu
2 - Daniel Alves

Cicinho is anything but a right back and even though you could say he could serve as option in case they decide to gung ho, I won't take that risk!

1. Cafu is the obvious starter, and he should be fit and fresh for the World Cup having missed around 3 months of action.
2. Cicinho should get the nod as Cafu's deputy. Even though he's a liability defensively, six months of playing in Europe is a good learning curve for him, albeit playing in a team with no D in Madrid, and that should perhaps improve his tactical awareness when the World Cup begins :hopefull:

Mancini is not a RB anymore.
Daniel has no experience in the NT and Cicinho is better than him.
And Beletti is crap.

Cicinho can't mark a chair.
He did pretty well in the Barca-RM match...

All I saw was he running like a headless chicken behind Ronaldinho leaving a major hole in his side (which wasn't explored by Barcelona because Gio is rubbish and dumb). Ronaldinho switched sides constantly, but if you have a player constantly running over him (like Wenger did with Reyes) he will be harassed over and over and over and over...

And his game becomes very limited that way: he is awesome having the freedom to constantly make his runs and even cutting to the middle (freedom he won't have if the other nt coaches made their homework, or else our defense will be even more exposed: but then we know the blame will fall down on Emerson's shoulders as he wasn't omnipresent :thmbdown: )... He would be very useful if Parreira actually tried using the 3-5-2, but we all know he won't.

Cafu and Maicon.

I am living in France right now and Maicon is red-hot. He is really good defensively and he has been playing in Europe for a season or 2 (don't remember).
