Well, maybe there aren't any big prizes, but after the match today, send me a pm with your list of 23 players Bielsa will call for the World Cup. When the official list is announced, I will post the person's name who came closest.

This way everyone's picks will be kept secret and nobody will know what anyone else's list looks like.


Remember this is not the list of players that you would like...this is a prediction of the list that Bielsa will pick.

(can someone think of a good prize?)

Zürich, 4 April 2002 - FIFA will announce the squad lists of the 32 finalist teams competing in the 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan™ on Friday 24 May 2002, 08.00 am CET.
As per the FIFA World Cup™ regulations, Article 22, “the list of not more than 23 players (showing the full surname(s), every first name, nickname, name on the shirt, position, place and date of birth, passport number, club and country of the club) shall be submitted to the FIFA general secretariat, using the official form for this purpose, at least 10 (ten) clear days before the first match in the final competition”.

This deadline expires on Tuesday 21 May 2002.

Also per the regulations, “each national association that qualifies for the final competition may enter 23 players (three of whom shall be goalkeepers) numbered from 1 to 23. The numbers on the back of the shirts shall correspond with the numbers indicated on the official players’ list. The number 1 shall be worn by a goalkeeper.”

Only these 23 players (except in cases of force majeure recognised by the Organising Committee for the FIFA World Cup) will be permitted to compete in the final competition.

The regulations further state: “A listed player may only be substituted in the event of serious injury up until 24 hours before his team’s first match, after FIFA has received a detailed medical assessment in one of the four official FIFA languages, and only after acceptance and confirmation by the FIFA Sports Medical Committee that the injury is sufficiently serious to prevent the player from taking part in the competition. The national association shall then immediately nominate the substitute and inform FIFA accordingly.”

The 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan™ will be held from 31 May to 30 June.

I've seen nothing that would lead me to believe he will announce early. We will have to wait and watch a little longer.

Romy will definitely probably not be selected.
