Arsenal players dominate World Cup Dream Team 2014

Brazil 2014 has been amazing


It's been the best World Cup I've ever watched. Italia 90 (I'm too young to really remember Mexico 86 properly) was great for England, but that allows us to view the tournament through rose tinted spectacles at times. USA 94 was awful. France 98 was enjoyable from an Arsenal perspective (sixteen years ago tonight Manu Petit scored his goal to seal the win for France). Japan/Korea was a good one because a few unexpected teams did well. Germany 2006 was just like the current tournament until it reached the knockout rounds when it became all about not losing, while South Africa 2010 was a bit rubbish all round. The number of goals and the brilliantly entertaining football matches played in Brazil (there really have been very few stinkers) has made it a great four weeks of TV. With all that in mind I am pleased to announce the FIFA Dream Team* for Brazil 2014 below:

Goalkeeper
To be confirmed, but it looks likely that David Ospina (Colombia) could win this by the end of the week.

Right Back
Again, still to be decided, though Mathieu Debuchy (France) looks nailed on for the position.

Left Back
Thomas Vermaelen (Belgium)

Centre Backs
Per Mertesacker (Germany) and Laurent Koscielny (France)

Right Wing
Mesut Ozil (Germany)

Left Wing
Lukas Podolski (Germany)

Central Midfield
Santiago Cazorla (Spain) and Jack Wilshere (England)

Centre Forwards
Joel Campbell (Costa Rica) and Olivier Giroud (France)

Substitutes
A surprise choice here as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (England) gets on the bench despite being injured throughout the tournament - that's how good he is. The other sub, following a late selection, is Alexis Sanchez (Chile). Sami Khedira (Germany) may yet be added at a later date.

That is a fine team, I'm sure you'd agree.



There won't be another post until at least next Friday as I'm tied up with work throughout this week. Next Saturday sees Arsenal taking to the pitch for the first time in 2014-15 so the close season will last less than six days, something we can all be pleased about.

  4. TRUSTED LENDER (LEXIELOANCOMPANY@YAHOO.COM)
    My name is Michael Lee a citizen of Illinois, USA. i have been scammed by 7 different Internet international lender, they all promise to give me a loan after making me pay several fees which yield nothing and amounted to no positive result. i lost my hard earn money and it was a total of 23930USD. One day as i was browsing through the internet with tears on my eye i came across a testimony of man who was also scammed and eventually got linked to a legit loan company called MARTINEZ LEXIE LOAN COMPANY where he finally got his loan, so i decided to contact the same loan company and then told them my story on how i have been scammed by 7 different lenders who did nothing but to course me more pain. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan in their company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them. I filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and to my greatest suprise my loan was granted to me without further delay and here i am today happy because Martinez Lexie Loan Company HAS GIVEN ME A REASON TO LIVE, so i made a vow to my self that i will keep testifying on the internet on how i got my loan.
