I think this thread should have been created earlier but better late than never. So far, as compared to Real Madrid, I think all of our Rossoneri have performed well. Italy Nesta: Great as usual. I would expect nothing less. Pirlo: His performance in the last two matches probably ensures he will never be left out of the azzurri starting eleven again. Gattuso: I think he proved to Trap(maybe too late) that he is a much better player than Zanetti/Perrotta. Holland Stam: IMO, the only player on Holland that is actually good at defending. Without him at the back Holland are in deep trouble. Seedorf: Has beaten out both Sneijder and Van der Vaart for a starting spot. Has looked really good so far. Denmark Tomasson: 3 goals in 3 games. Is gonna push Pippo for a starting spot this year. Croatia Simic: Impressed at right back for Croatia. Never made any mistakes and was always clean with his tackles. Portugal Rui Costa: Played bad in the first game against Greece. But since then has only made two appearances off the bench. And on both occasions he scored a goal. He should definately start against Holland. Deco hasn't impressed me at all.
