excellent. i read they want to call him up, didnt know if hes going or not, hence the star next to his name.

Robinho is 24, why is he being called up? but i guess they count him as 23 from the time of the qualifiers and thus he's eligible.

when Inter refuse to allow Burdisso , Bayern refuse to allow Demichelis and Depor refuse to allow coloccini

why should Real allow Heinze !!?

We already blocked Heinze from going, no need to worry. The reasoning is apparently because Cannavaro is hurt, Garay is loaned out, and Pepe and Metzelder would be the only CBs available.

Higuain wasn't picked eventually.
thats strange! anyone know why? He already played for the full NT, surely he deserves a place in Olympic team

The Olympic squad is only 18 players, not 23 like in the world cup or the Euro, so it's harder to be included.

Here are the 5 forwards they took:

Forwards: Diego Buonanotte (River Plate), Sergio Aguero (Atletico Madrid), Lionel Messi (Barcelona), Ezequiel Lavezzi (Napoli), Angel Di Maria (Benfica).

Messi, Lavezzi and Aguero obviously deserved to be there, never seen the other two.

I'm fine with the fact Higuain will have a full pre-season with us, it will improve his chances to get minutes when the season starts.

I'm happy Pipita will not be joining the NT we get him for preseason


I have a great feeling about this boy and I think he will take the next step this season!

Argentina already has Román as one of the older players. I wonder if there is place for heinze among the other two.

Madridistas @ Olympia

Hey guys,

olympic football started today.

Marcelo started for Brazil, that won 1-0 over Belgium by a minimum effort.

Right now the game Holland-Nigeria starts and Drenthe is in the starting XI. ...

Drenthe is incredible. iam amazed that someone like baptista plays before him, gobsmacked really. hes the most decisive player in this dutch side, so dangerous.

how did he not play more than a handful of games. shame on you schuster, shame on you.

so true ... I so agree although I believe in Schuster but prefering Baptista over Drenthe is blasphemy

and he wont be give much time this season as well lets hope he is loaned out this season
