Larsson Returns

Marcello Lippi has named his complete squad for tonight's clash between Manchester United and a European XI.

Larsson will once again return to Old Trafford but of course it's no great surprise, we've known it for weeks he would play for Europe in this game. It's played to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome as well as United's first attempt on the European front in 1957.

Fans might suggest that due to fixture congestion and the current injury sitaution, this match is a pain in the a**e but always look on the bright side of life: many of Europe's fines players will grace Old Trafford in a probably spectacular event. The game won't be harder than an average training so we should not look at it as a normal fixture. The only problem is that we could play Boro tonight instead of on Monday but I'm looking forward to this game very much.

Oh, and I almost forgot: here's Lippi's squad.

Goalkeepers: Oliver Kahn (Bayern Munich), Grégory Coupet (Lyon), Iker Casillas (Real Madrid).
Defenders: Paolo Maldini (AC Milan), Jamie Carragher (Liverpool), Eric Abidal (Lyon), Lilan Thuram (Barcelona), Carles Puyol (Barcelona), Marco Materazzi (Inter), Fabio Grosso (Inter).
Midfielders: Gianluca Zambrotta (Barcelona), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Juninho Pernambucano (Lyon), Florent Malouda (Lyon), Luis Miguel (Valencia), Gennaro Gattuso (AC Milan), Andrea Pirlo (AC Milan).
Strikers: Ronaldinho (Barcelona), Ronaldo (AC Milan), Alessandro Mancini (AS Roma), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Inter), Henrik Larsson (Helsingborg).

God, man. He was only joking. You know, some lively banter, teasing opposing fans - one of the best things about football. (As for you argument, Wes Brown and David May also won the Champions League :-)))
