        Woo!! Can't wait to watch this game. Since Ireland is out (because handballs are totally acceptable, right?), I only care about the USA team.

    Who are the 3 most valuable Brazilian players that aren't going?

    Argentina cut Cambiasso, who was on the team that won the Champions League but I can't recall any other glaring omissions. I do know Maradona was keen on using home talent. Italy lost to Mexico 2-1 on a friendly and I think the coach cut some of their better players as well. England has lost Rio Ferdinand now in addition to Beckham's injury a few months back.

    Many teams are losing players to injury. Drogba apparently broke his arm, and Ballack injured himself as well. Fernando Torres got injured too but he is still on the lineup so maybe they expect him to make a recovery.

    Despite all this, I hope it's gonna be a good one!

      roberto carlos, ronaldinho, adriano aren¨t. dunga states that they are going to play to win, not to play "bonito"(fantasy), do not want individualist, team work is what they looking for

    Italy only has 1 injured player....Andrea Pirlo....not 3 as mentioned previously, even if you count the recently recovered Camoranesi that would still only make it 2.....
