Get Up, Stand Up

In case you didn’t know, the World Cup starts in two days. If you don’t hear from me between Friday and sometime in mid-July, you’ll know why.

If you’re down for the challenge, click here and assemble your very own World Cup Starting XI. The only conditions: you have to use a 4-4-2 formation (i.e., four defenders, four midfielders and two forwards) and can select a maximum of two players per country (so no stacking up on Brazilians, or whoever else you might fancy to win the tournament/score bags of goals). Then, join mine and Paul’s friend league; based on past experience, at the very least you’ll beat Paul.

My team, for the record:

Jens Lehmann (Germany)
Gabriel Heinze (Argentina) – Philip Lahm (Germany) – Carlos Puyol (Spain) – John Terry (England)
Frank Lampard (England) – Juan Riquelme (Argentina) – Kaka (Brazil) – Zinadine Zidane (France)
Adriano (Brazil) – Ruud van Nistelrooy (Holland)
Go nuts.
