so...who is your favourite player at the W/C?
And why doesn't Maldini still play for Italy :(
Out of retirement for one last run at glory.
retired for club football...
I'd have loved to have seen a 50-year-old Roger Milla make a shock comeback and show all the kids how its done like in '94.
My favourite player in the World Cup is probably the 23rd named player for Angola, whoever that is.
Irrelevant to the point.
and he, quite rightly, doesn't want his reputation as one of the best defenders ever ruined a la Lothar Matthaus in Euro 2000.
I like Riquelme lots. And Ronaldinho (obv), Cafu (even though he's past his best), Shevchenko, Joaquin, Larsson, Toni etc. etc.
Most missed: Rui Costa
were Maldini still not an absolutely top class defender even at the age of 38.
He is still doing it for A.C.
His choice I guess...
My favourite is Puyol. I heart defence...
than Clinton Morrison's reasons for playing for Ireland...
Port of Spain.
But I'm going to say Gilberto Silva because he seems like a nice guy.
I can't remember which
I saw a member of the Netherlands squad busting out a bombastic drum/keyboard/guitar solo in that shop below Virgin on Oxford Street. It was for that Question of Sport segment where you have to guess who it is. I just wish I could remember which player it was.
But it wasn't.
think we have too many :P
