UEFA EURO 2008 Fantasy football

With the EURO 2008 starting on this coming Saturday, the fever is kicking in (and it is a great feeling to have it back!). And as is appropriate in such times, I have made a team called "The Ugly Outfits" on the UEFA Fantasy football site.
The team is as follows:
  • Goallie: Nikopolidis (Greece)
  • Defenders: Heitinga (Netherlands), Lahm (Germany), Sergio Ramos (Spain), Senderos (Switzerland)
  • Midfielders: Ballack (Germany), Robben (Netherlands), Kranjcar (Croatia), Nani (Portugal)
  • Attackers: Torres (Spain), Nuno Gomes (Portugal)
I am allowed one substitute, where I chose Frei (Switzerland).
It is not easy to choose these teams, and I am under no illusion that this is a brilliant side. But at least I have tried to choose some solid players not everyone takes, as well as some of the more conventional players. If they don't perform, one can substitute, although that surely also needs to be done with care.

Due to the poor showing of my team (and also having not propoerly researched), I have been forced to do some changes and reshuffling: senderos has gone out for Pepe from Portugal.
Robben has been replaced by his Dutch compatriot Dirk Kuyt and Nani by Galasek from the Czech republic.
The injured Alex Frei has been replaced by good ole' Henrik Larsson.
32 points in the first round, OUCH!!!!
