I don't know about you guys, but I have been counting down the months and days to world cup. Perhaps a little a premature, but relevant nonetheless. Here are my starting 11 for WC 2002:

Quim (barring drug bans)

RB (?????) Costa Couto Rui Jorge


Paulo Sousa Petit

Simao Rui Costa Figo

Pauleta

The above mentioned formation would be against tjhe likes of Italy, France and Argentina.

For the more feable opponent, I would field this formation:

RB-still undecided Costa Couto Rui Jorge

Petit

Simao Rui Costa Figo

Nuno Gomes Pauleta

What do you guys think?

In the WC there are no weak teams even though some are perceived to be . IMO thats all Bullsh!t !!!!!!!
Everyones starts at the same level !!!!!!!

I beleive in everygame Mr. Oliveira will start with 1 striker only !!

A nossa selecao!!

I agree Portugal has to take everybody seriouslly our we will find ourselfs out of the tournament fast,the teams are there beacause they passed their groups and were the best you can say some countries had an easier time but when 2002WC starts everybody starts in the same position and has the same amount of games with the same amount to sart in a game 11 v's 11 the best moves on let's just hope Portugal our on their game and do what they are capable of doing.

as for the line up to soon?

injuries:depress:

As always im gonna have to go with my good ole pal OPORTO
Its far to early to speculate about starters, alot can happen from now till the end of May. For instance one of the players you chose
Petit might not even make it to the WC cus of his broken toe.
give it a few months maybe when we are done all our friendlys and then i might be able to tell you the appropriate starting 11 based on performance
