As opposed to the clear evidence of Henry handling the ball, not once
but twice? You having a laugh mate, unfortunately for you no one else

You should really pay attention to what people are saying before you reply.
I am not denying that Henry handled the ball. He handled the ball minutes
after Given blatantly brought Anelka down in the box. Both teams cheated.

Yet they are a team that reliably makes the second round in every
tournament. You can't measure the strength of a team solely by the
number and quality of players they send to Europe.

It seems madness to me that a team can contest a World Cup with three
central midfielders. There are dozens of formations in use in the
modern game, but not one I'm aware of that features less than two
central midfielders. What if one of them gets injured? Does Maradona
intend to never substitute his central players?

As far as I'm aware, Martins doesn't start. That tells you all you
need to know about the team - when a squad's obvious strength is the
quality of its strikers, and only one of them starts, it can only mean
they have no one who can provide them with chances. This team is as
likely to finish last as they are to finish second, IMO.

I think picking Heskey over more obviously gifted goalscorers is
actually brave management. This team is designed to get the best of
Rooney and Gerrard, both of whom have been excellent under Capello.
Heskey occupies the centerbacks and gives more talented players the
space they need to shine. As much as I love his gangly elegance,
Crouch can't do that because of his comparative lack of mobility and
his tendency to play deep.
