I did hear a whisper it might enter the charts.

me neither, specialy Zanetti.

i'm an argentina fan but, even with the great players they have, with no coach you can't do it...

Spain left out Marcos Senna.. I tht he was their best holding MF..

he spent most of the season injured, so it's normal that he didn't make it, plus they have Xabi alonso and Busquets to take hes place.

Kuyt can come off the bench and be deadly.. that can be the attack to watch for.. not sure if they can defend.. but if they can outscore their opponents what else do they need?

that's the thing with the dutch, remember how they were surprising everyone during the euro's then lost out to the semi's? It was for that exact reason, defense. So it wouldn't surprise me that they do well, but once they face a team that can play both sides of the ball well they'll be in trouble.

no country has a dumber coach then the french... NO ONE!

Here here.. laugh.gif but Maradona is not that far behind..

Argentina coach Diego Maradona insulted a cameraman after accidentally running over his leg ahead of naming his final World Cup squad.

The journalist was hit by Maradona'sspacer.gif car as he drove his Mini into the Argentine Football Association (AFA) training complex in Buenos Airesspacer.gif on Wednesday.

The 1986 World Cupspacer.gif winner then shouted abuse at the cameraman for getting in the way of his car.

"What an a**hole you are," Maradona shouted from the car after braking, "How can you put your foot under the wheel, man?"

Paramedics attended to the cameraman who was taken away for further treatment.

Maradona has since issued an apology to the victim, saying he gave a statement to the local prosecutor.

"I was driving down the street," he said. "I'm sorry it happened. I gave a statement to the prosecutor and I hope everything comes out OK."

And he hates the press.. can't say I blame him for that though :rofl:

If you're wondering what the epic name of the song playing in the video (yes the one with the yodeling) is "Hocus Pocus" by the Dutch band Focus. :D
