Liverpool were still lacking in key areas such as wingers and quality strikers. Experts are quick to point out that success is associated with loyalty and stability. He is so smart that he can destroy any obstacles in front of him.
It has been a long season for Aston Villa. They have conceded the second highest number of goals in the league, gone out of both cup competitions with embarrassing ease to lower league opposition and still have the potential to become one of the biggest clubs to be relegated from the league since it was formed in 1992. Whether they can hold it together to survive remains to be seen. Recently they have started to show some form but with nine games to go there is still a lot of football to be played.
Left midfield – 11. Diego Maradona. Probably most famous for his ‘hand of God’ goal against England in 1986 and his well publicised drug problems, we shouldn’t forget that he had fantastic balance and strength. His dribbling ability was second to none, and he possessed a wicked shot, cross and pass.
This years hosts of the competition and the surprise finalists of the 2002 tournament. They always say never count out the Germans and with it being on their home turf dare you?
He started off by playing for Manchester United in the youth team. The Manager, Sir Alex Ferguson had a great faith in his youth team. Beckham did not disappoint and quickly established himself as United’s right side mid fielder. He played very consistently and regularly for Manchester United, but could not find a place in the England squad before ’96. He made some spectacular goals and thus became a house hold name very soon. His performance in 1998-99 seasons fetched him the “runner up” to Rivaldo for the 1999 European footballer of the year awards. He was the highest paid foot ball player in the world. During this time United won the Premier league; title six times, the FA cup twice and the UEFA champions’ league in 1999.
But I feel compelled to write about Barcelona today. They battled Real Madrid today in El Clasico, the much-hyped match between the Spanish super-powers with a deep-seeded hatred for one another ranging from politics to sport.
The fact that Sakiewicz denies the rumor means relatively nothing. We see this in professional sports all the time. Management will never leak any information before it is officially announced. And they will deny rumors, even if they are true, due to confidentiality. But the fact that Sakiewicz revealed that Seedorf is interested in MLS, makes this a legitimate rumor.
Right Back – 2. Cafu. The now 37 year-old full back is still playing at the highest level of the game for Milan. He has a remarkable 156 Brazilian caps, and has played in four world cup tournaments and three consecutive world cup finals. His marauding style makes him a clear winner in this position.
