Dudek - Arbeloa, Albiol, Metzelder, Drenthe - Guti (Gago), M.Diarra - van der Vaart, Raúl (van Nistelrooy), Marcelo (Granero) - Benzema

2 of thier defensive players are usually starters and players like Guti, Granero, Raul, Benzema and Rafa should have no problem against a third division defense.

Kaka and CR9 wouldn't had change the result. In fact, if it wasn't for Dudek, the match would had ended 7-0 or 8-0.

23-Man FIFA World Player Of The Year Shortlist Announced
Almost two dozen top players fight it out for one award...


Quote:

The nominees for the 2009 FIFA World Player of the Year Award have been announced, with an array of players that, while being largely predictable, contains one or two surprises.

Every player on the 23-man shortlist for the men's award is based in Europe, with no representatives of the South American or Asian leagues taking part.

A plethora of Premier League stars have been nominated for the 2009 FIFA award, which also includes six players from Barcelona's all-conquering side, and also six from the Spanish national camp.

However, just one Italian, Gianluigi Buffon of Italy and Juventus, has made the cut.

The winner of the coveted annual award will be announced at the 19th Fifa World Player Gala, at the Zurich Kongresshaus, on Monday December 21.

Along with France Football's "Ballon d'Or" award, this is one of two major individual accolades in the global game.

Full details of the nominees have been disclosed below, in alphabetical order. Players who moved club during the year have their current team shown first.

Argentine Football Rallies To Support Gunned Down Fernando Caceres

Quote:

A banner of support for Fernando Caceres was displayed at kick-off when two of his former teams met in Buenos Aires at the weekend.

Players from both Argentinos Juniors and Independiente wished the 40-year-old well as the retired defender fights for his life after being shot in the face during an armed raid.

A gang of robbers attempted to steal Caceres’ BMW and resorted to shooting when the former Argentine international refused to give up the car.

According to the testimony of a women who was in the car with Caceres, the band of robbers drove their car in front of the BMW and fired several shots into the vehicle’s windscreen. The would-be thieves then made off in their Fiat Siena.

One of the bullets fired entered the ex-footballer’s head through his right eye. Although doctors in Buenos Aires operated on the comatose Caceres, they were unable to remove the bullet.

Police made several raids in the area of the city known as Fort Apache on Sunday, arresting six people, including two boys of 15 and 16. The police are still after one other suspect but believe they have already retrieved the weapons that were used in the attack.

The area where the arrests were made is the neighbourhood where Carlos Tevez grew up, and the Manchester City man has recently spoken of the violence that dominates the area.

Among the first people to visit Caceres in hospital was Diego Maradona, a former team-mate with Argentina and Boca Juniors.

Clearly distressed at the state he found his friend in, Maradona gave his assessment of the dangers facing people in Buenos Aires.

“This is a time bomb, going out is a constant danger,” Maradona told television station TyCSports. “This happens every day, nobody does anything and something must be done.

“'El Negro' [Caceres] is in the hands of God and I hope it helps,” the Argentine manager added. “If there was one person that did not deserve this then it is him”

FIFA hit Diego Maradona with two-month suspension

Quote:

Argentina manager Diego Maradona has been banned from football for two months and fined by FIFA as punishment for his rant at journalists following Argentina's qualification for the World Cup finals.

The ban, announced by a FIFA disciplinary committee after a hearing with Maradona, extends to any "football-related activity" and is effective immediately, meaning the Argentina manager is suspended from November 15 to January 15.

Shitty call by FIFA if you ask me. Maradona should had been suspended for 6 months or 5 FIFA official matchdays like it was estipulated. It seems Grondona (Argentina's AFA President) is a close friend of old-fossil Blatter and by so the first one asked the second one to go "easy with the drug-addict".

What a shame...

Exactly. 2 months ban for Maradona is useless considering he will most likely just miss 1 friendly... big deal!
