Dejan Stankovic is gearing up to lead Serbia and Montengro to their first World Cup victory!

Alvaro Recoba will be watching from home, knowing that he might have possibly only one more chance to lead Uruguay at the big event!

Luis Figo will be leading a favorite in Portugal to victory this summer, hoping his comeback was worth it!

Marco Materazzi will be providing adequate cover for a Totti-shaken Italia, hoping that he can get his chance but not at the expense of others!

Zanetti and Samuel and Cambiasso will be hoping their favorite Argentina can finally emerge from within Brazil's shadow! Cambiasso will be hoping that an injury to Mareschano might finally mean he gets his deserved starter spot in the NT!

Cruz will be doing his best to try to make the Argentina squad as a fifth striker!

Adriano will be hoping he can regain his form and lead Brazil to the same success as he has led them in the Copa America!

Oba Martins will be resting at home, knowing that failure for a great nation like Nigeria will not do in the next World Cup!

Ivan Cordoba will be mulling his sorrow after knowing that he deserves so much more than missing out on the big stage this summer!

Julio Cesar will be hoping Dida's bad form will enable him to take over as Brazil's no. 1 Goalkeeper come the summer!

Wome will be crying, knowing he had the balls to take a penalty and failed for his country!



My hopes:

USA wins over Italy. That will guarantee a second place finish in the group. Then, next up- A clash with Brazil. Where I hope we will conquer and show that Brazilians are all hype and no type.

if adriano continues his poor form, he'll probably have to go to the bench...ronaldinho + ronaldo + robinho for brazil...

Do any of u think there is any chance of Veron being recalled to the Argies squad....He certainly deserves...Although he does quite abit of competition in the centre of the park in the Argentine squad, notably Aimar, Messi, Riquelme.

Two players Argentina need if they want a chance to win the world cup:

1. Veron
2. Messi

I'm quite sure Veron wont be selected as Pekerman doesn't rate him. Messi MUST play. If he doesn't, then Argentina have no chance whatsoever.

As you guys might or might not know, I supported Argentina way before any other NT/Club. (Maradona)

I'm hoping for this:

------Abondanzieri--------

JZ---Ayala--Samuel---Heinze

----Cambiasso--------Sorin
------------Veron---------
----------Riquelme--------

---Messi
---------Crespo-----------

We can always have great subs in Aimar, Saviola, Luis Gonzalez, Mascherano.

Knowing Pekerman however, he will probably have Luis Gonzalez or Mascherano in there instead of Veron. I just hope Messi makes it.

As for Argentina I think Cambiasso and Mascherano can play together in the same kind of partnership as Cambiasso has had with C Zanetti in Inter.

Veron should be there in Germany as a playmaker. Riquelme is better than Veron right now, but the WC will be long (hopefully) and he'll gonna need a sub. Aimar and Messi can also do the playmaking but I see them more as offensive midfielders or support strikers.

There won't be any smashed TVs. If I know Stankovic well, he won't even lead his side to the round of 16 :D

What Argentina needs is Veron. The Cambiasso-Veron partnership would do wonders to Argentina.

This is unless there is some sort of a curling tournament.
