SoccerAge Special: Best Italian Eleven Of The Season



Roma's skipper Francesco Totti will lead Italy in the World Cup (AP)


05/08/2002. ITALIANS (3-4-1-2)


Francesco Antonioli (Roma) – A very solid season for the former Milan keeper, and this must have been a huge revenge for him after the troubled 2000/2001 season.
---------------
Ciro Ferrara (Juventus) – What a big surprise! The old lion didn't stop roaring: he was expected to spend most of the season on the bench, but soon Lippi realized that he couldn't do without him.

Alessandro Nesta (Lazio) – Many people will remember his bad mistakes in the Rome derby, but the Italy International proved his huge reliability during most of the season and deserves this virtual jersey in our best eleven of the season.

Marcello Castellini (Bologna) – This sometimes-underrated defender looked really impressive in most of his outings, and not by chance many top teams are chasing him.
---------------
Carmine Gautieri (Piacenza) – He was definitely one of the most effective forwards of the league. Apart from scoring seven goals, the former Roma winger provided his teammate Hubner with plenty of good supplies.

Eugenio Corini (Chievo) – The experienced playmaker was simply awesome, providing Chievo with class and imagination. As we pointed out so many times before, not giving him a ticket to Korea and Japan is a crime, especially taking into account that Italy miss quality in the middle.

Giovanni Tedesco (Perugia) – His seven goals and his huge determination were worth plenty of fundamental points for Perugia. Definitely one of the most effective midfielders of the league.

Cristiano Doni (Atalanta) – The superb season of the most prolific Italian midfielder (16 goals scored) couldn't end in a different way: a spot in Trapattoni's list for the World Cup
---------------
Francesco Totti (Roma) – His immense imagination and effectiveness were not enough for Roma to win the second scudetto in a row, but maybe they will be for Italy to win the World Cup…
---------------

Christian Vieri (Inter) – 22 goals in 25 matches: Bobo was once again impressive, to say the least. If Inter didn't win the Scudetto, it's not certainly his fault…

Dario Hubner (Piacenza) – 24 goals in a small team like Piacenza are enough to deserve a call by a top team? This could finally be the right time: in spite of his 35 years, the Bison still has plenty to give.

Substitutes: Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus), Christian Panucci (Roma), Salvatore Fresi (Bologna), Simone Perrotta (Chievo), Alessandro Del Piero (Juventus), Roberto Baggio (Brescia), Vincenzo Montella (Roma)

SoccerAge Special: Best Foreign Eleven Of The Season


The Serie A's topscorer, David Trezeguet (Allsport)


05/08/2002. FOREIGN (3-4-3)

Sebastien Frey (Parma) – The French keeper did his best in order to help Parma, but the Gialloblù struggled because most of his teammates didn't do the same.
---------------
Javier Zanetti (Inter) – Inter's skipper was just great this season. Inter took huge profit from his leadership and effectiveness on both sides of the pitch.

Ivan Cordoba (Inter) –The quickest defender of the league confirmed that it's almost impossible to get past him in a one on one situation.

Walter Samuel (Roma) – It was another impressive season for the Argentinean Rock, perhaps the most solid defender of the whole league, as well as one of the most prolific (5 goals scored).
---------------

Eriberto (Chievo) – The Brazilian winger looked often unstoppable, especially in the first part of the season. Roma's jersey is ready for him…

Emerson (Roma) – Another solid season for the Brazilian playmaker, but this is no surprise at all. As well as recovering an impressive number of balls in the middle, he scored five important goals.

Clarence Seedorf (Inter) – When Cuper finally gave him confidence, the Dutch player became fundamental for the Nerazzurri. Didn't he deserve to play in the final (and decisive) match of the season?

Pavel Nedved (Juventus) – The former Lazio player struggled in the first part of the season, but when Lippi decided to leave him free to move along the offensive line, he became devastating.
---------------
Adrian Mutu (Verona) – Inter didn't believe in the young Romanian forward, who found the best way to prove that the Nerazzurri were wrong. Unfortunately for Verona, his twelve goals were not enough in order to avoid the relegation.

Ronaldo (Inter) – Although many people didn't believe it, Ronnie is back, and this is great news for all of the soccer fans, regardless of flags and jersey.

David Trezeguet (Juventus) – Put a ball in the middle, and the French striker will turn it either in a goal or in a huge scoring chance. His effectiveness inside the opponents' box is something impressive.

Substitutes: Alexander Manninger (Fiorentina), Jaap Stam (Lazio), Marcos Cafu (Roma), Edgar Davids (Juventus), Josep Guardiola (Brescia), Mohammed Kallon (Inter), Adriano (Fiorentina)

Ronaldo has only played a handful of games, how could Di Vaio not finish above him after scoring over 20 goals this season in a poor Parma season.

Ronaldo was in the Best Foreign Eleven Of The Season, and Di Vaio isn't a foreigner.

I hope you guys recognize this name from my post a few months back. Castellini was a monster, an absolute superstar this year. While Fresi and Falcone received the majority of credit for the solid Bologna backline, this dude did just as much, if not more, to secure the club. I saw him completely take strikers and middies out of matches. I believe he will make the Azzuri soon. What is his age?
