Against France, do you guys think Zenden should start on the left ahead of Overmars? I don't mean to slight Marc, as he's definitely one of the best Dutch players in the world right now, but Zenden really outshined him on the left side against Norway IMO. I think a lot of that has to do with Zenden's natural left-footedness. Personally, I think until Marc gets back in form, I would like to see Zenden start on the left and De Boer on the right (maybe Makaay? One thing's for sure, I sure as hell do not want to see Bosvelt or Seedorf). Or if Rijkaard must start Overmars, I think he should put him on the right as opposed to Zenden. Zenden was really out of place in the first half when he started in that position, I thought.

This would be my lineup for the crucial match against France:


Reiziger Stam De Boer Numan

Davids Cocu
De Boer Zenden

Kluivert Bergkamp

De Goey
Van Bronckhorst
Konterman (please don't let him play)

Stam won't be playing against the French.
Marc Overmars, Ronald De Boer, Clarence Seedorf are all slightly injured, all should be fit by Wednesday, one of them has to play on the right. It's likely Zenden will start on the left.
Van Der Sar is also in serious doubt, Westerveld will have a huge game on his hands.
