RaW Sport World Cup Dream Team

It has been an absorbing four weeks of football in Germany, and now you all want to know who has made the RaW Sport World Cup dream team.
It takes the shape of 4–5–1, which so many coaches seem to favour. (and I’m still puzzled as to why they favour it). This team would definitely bludgeon their way to a negative 1–0 victory.

Jens Lehmann – imperious at the back, thoroughly deserved his selection over Oliver Kahn. Narrowly beats Buffon to the number 1 slot.

Gianluca Zambrotta – magnificent performances form the Juventus full back underlined his importance to the team

Fabio Cannavaro – immense

Rafael Marquez – was outstanding for Mexico, a pity that he had to go home so early

Philip Lahm – dangerous going forward on marauding runs, and pitched in with some brilliant defensive cover, especially in the semi final

Maniche – showed quality and vision on the ball, chipping in with the odd goal. Pity the rest of his team–mates were so average. The hard working midfielder showed Chelsea fans and the world what he was really capable of.

Gennaro Gattuso – some magnificent performances from the pitbull.

Juan Roman Riquelme – touched the ball more often than any other player in the competition. Influential for Argentina, who had nothing against Germany after he was substituted.

Tim Cahill – turned the Socceroos group game against Japan, and turned in some typical industrious performances

Andrea Pirlo – ran the show for the Italians.

Miroslav Klose – Golden boot winner – you cannot argue with the number of goals he has scored. Actually managed to score some with his feet this time.

Coach – Only Marcelo Lippi could coach this team.

*Zinedine Zidane was in the team until a quite magnificent headbutt on Marco Materazzi. He certainly retired in style.

  1. Like your team Rob. Put Zidane back in for Cahill though.
