My team
GK: Julio Cesar(Brazil & Inter Milan)
Slowly, emerging as one of the top 5 goalkeepers in the world.

RB: Massimo Oddo(Italy & AC Milan)
He can go forward and play defense. He is known for his assists in Serie A. He should play a big role for Italy during the upcoming Euro 2008 due to the poor performances of Zambrotta and Grosso.

CB: Philippe Mexès (France & Roma)
Perhaps, one of the top 5 CBs in Serie A this year and probably the top 10 in his position.

CB: Pepe (Portugal & Real Madrid)
Because of injury this season, his performance has not justified his price tag. However, he has put up several performances that lived up to the tag of being the best CB prospect in the world.

CB: Marco Materazzi(Italy & Inter Milan)
Hate him or like him. He is one of the most phyicscal and aggressive CB in the world. There is a reason why he is the starting CB for Italy.

LB: Manuel Pasqual (Italy & Fiorentina)
When I drafted him, I had 8 or 9 LBs ahead of him on the depth chart. I drafted him because he is one of the best crosser of the ball in Serie A. My left attack is too weak on the left flank, especailly the cross. I do not want that aspect of my game impotent.

MF: Simone Perrotta (Italy & Roma)
One of the few players in the world who can be both a midfield enforcer and contribute offensively.

MF: Esteban Cambiasso (Argentina & Inter Milan)
He is perhaps one of the top 5 CM in the world. He is probably the best two-way player in the world.

MF: Cristiano Zanetti (Italy & Juventus)
The most steady player for Juventus this season..... he also earned a recall from Donadoni, but he turned it down.

MF: Samir Nasri (France & Marseille)
The Midfield Maestro ~ I took him earlier because of the lack of quality distributor of the ball in the ball.

MF: Riccardo Montolivo (Italy & Fiorentina)
Known as the new "Totti", One of the reason why Fiorentina is in a CL position for next season.

FW: Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal & Man Utd)
The Best Player in the World this season

FW: Wayne Rooney (England & Man Utd)
With Ronaldo, the best pair of forwards for the last two seasons.

FW: Klaas Jan Huntelaar (Holand & Ajax)
Currently stands at 2nd place for the European Golden Shoe competiation

FW: Nihat Kahveci (Turkey & Villareal CF)
17 goals so far this season.

FW: Arjen Robben(Holand & Real Madrid)
Sine April, he regained his old form. See the link above.
