Juventus - 4 Players :proud::star:

Seems a pretty alright team, but Figo shouldn't be there, really. Like the guy above me says, King Ludo deserves it more.

the team was voted by teh XT audience. Its noone's fault there is no on ejohny block there. Becham was extremely close to get it ahead of Figo, but apart form that, can you tell me who and where?

May be Cambell for Nesta; or Owen for Henry???

Team looks great, IMO! I know ppl might have personal preferances fror one or two, but this team is a killer. Superb Defense, plus one dominant Viera! Figo-Zidane-Nedved shoudl be enough to guarantee the best midfield in ages - creativity, power, vision, bacll-control, passing, long shots, has it all. Henry-RVN could hardly be contested in Europe. One Sheva comes to mind, but of course Ukraine is not there.

Wil be interesting to see a all S.American 11 and compare ...

One other strong side of thsi team is teh link between the players.

Buffon-Nesta-Canna-Zambro know how to play at teh back with each other from teh Italian NT! Thuram and Zambrota too, besides Thuram plays in Italy for ages.

In fact I am sure, Thuram-Nesta-Canna can play 3 man D when needed.

Viera-Zidane-Herny come directly from teh reigning Euro Champs.

Figo-Zidane know each other quite well already in Real.

Same for the left side - Zambrotta and Nedved cover for each other for more than an year in Juve.

Its a killer, I am telling you!

Good team indeed. However, just like a few have pointed, I'd also put Ludo Giuly instead of Figo or even Pires instead of Figo. Other than that, nothing to add. Maybe I'd put Maldini instead of Canna but San Paolo is not (probably) going to the Euro and that's the only time and reason someone would pick Canna over San Paolo.

And VERY good point Bono about the players knowing each other as this guarantees better productivity on the field from these super-stars. However, we all know whom is the MEGA star of the team, don't we?:stuckup: ;)

Cheers.;)

I always suspected you knew something about football, bono. :angel: :D

I'd be interested in seeing a South American team in comparison. I'm also curious to see how our prediction will hold up after the Euro. :)

hmmm...rather a lot of Italians in that team Luigi. And, hang on, not one johnny english bloke. How strange:howler:

well like bono said, beckham came close. for the italians, most of them are unquestionable. buffon, nesta and zambro are all tops in their positions. canna is a questionable one but people voted for him and even if he didnt win, it was going to be stam.

Good work Luigi.

Team is awesome, and Figo DOES deserve to be there. He is still the best right winger in the world, despite how many people might hate him.
Ask a Barca fan...

Because he has become slow and lazy and the only thing he does is scoring some penalty kicks...

His attitude stinks and he always has to pull a long face whenever he plays. His NT performance sucks, too.
