Must Be Nice To Be Italy

I think, barring injuries and one or two uncertainties - like the fitness of Owen Hargreaves - most of us can pretty much predict the entire England 2010 World Cup squad right now.

And, to be honest, it's a squad that looks a little weak in terms of breadth and depth. After the first 11, there aren't too many truly top class players. Wayne Bridge, Peter Crouch - these are good Premier League players, but, if you are honest with yourself, they are not first tier international players.

So, it must be nice to Marcello Lippi, Italy head coach. Lippi has announced he has already decided on 17 of his 23 man squad for South Africa 2010, but is struggling to choose the remaining six.

The reason, and I quote, "It's a tough choice given that at the moment at least 35 players are playing to a high level."

Now, hands up how many of you really think that England is in with a chance of winning the 2010 World Cup? Yup, thought so.
