Italy: One of the most prized free kick takers, Andrea Pirlo is out with an injury. Now Italy has to do without its skilled play maker. He is greatly remembered for his role world cup in which Italy emerged victors.
England. Imagine a country playing without the captain. Rio Fedinand has been ruled out with a calf injury on the left leg. Will be replaced at the back by inexperienced Dorwson of Tottenham. Now Capelo has to rethink. Has Cole at the left, Johnson on the right, King and Terry in the centre back. However, King ios prone to injuries. Lets wait and see how they get on against USA.
Ivory Coast. Their captain might as well be out after fracturing an arm in training. Didier Drgba is one hell of inspiration for the team. Now they will have to rely on Solomon Kalou, Dindane or Kone. Well, a great test.
Nigeria: The influential and typical number 6 at the moment in the world, John Obi Mikel is out with a knee injury. That is a testing period for Nigeria.
A few days to go, we need to keep watch. So many players like Van Persie, Fabregas, Ledly King, Torres, not leaving out Rooney the man are injury prone.
Do we now count England off the Trophy?
