You made some major mistakes.
Rooney over Balotelli
Rooney is a much better player, and Balotelli is a headcase.
Ozil over Fabregas
How do you leave Ozil off?!?!?!?! Seriously!?!?
Casillas over Buffon
Buffon is old, and no longer the best keeper on the planet. Casillas is now the best.
Muller over Walcott
Why would you ever have Walcott on this team?
Gerrard over Benzema
Wanted to put Xavi here, but had to go with Gerrard.

Ok, i did forget about ozil, ha ha..
fabregas goes on the bench, benzema hits the showers..
when balotelli gets a yellow for headbutting his own coach, cesc comes on..
Dude, im a huge england and rooney fan..
balotelli scores more individual goals, is in better shape and younger..
yeah balo is nuts,
(even if rooney missed 2 games over thuggery)..
but if ya want championships, you must take risks..
plus rooney loves beer, balo has 2% body fat..
I personally believe buffon has the best vision/IQ..
i have not seen him lose a game cause of his age yet..
van der sar was awesome at 39.
nasiri over gerrard..
stevie is too old and injury prone..
sams short passes are prettier..
arsenal and chitty is an impressive resume..
Stevie is better on the flanks..
but i already got excellent wingers..
nasiri is better down the middle with his short passes..
Dude, did ya see the england vs sweden game..
in 30 mins walcott scored and assisted..
i would never start theo..
but you cant teach pace..
muller is more consistent..
theo gives you a different attackin option, and when on, wreaks more havoc..

Who cares was Rooney looks like, or what kind of shape he is in. He just scores goals. And why would you want a more individual scorer on a team loaded with talent. Give me the guy that is going to finish off beautiful passes from the likes of Ozil and Ronaldo.
Plus, Balotelli isn't even starting on Italy anymore!
Ozil is arguably the best player in the tournament, and one of the top 3 in the world. He is great, and will be for a really long time. I don't know how you simply miss or forget him.
Casillas is just so much quicker now. He is the best keeper by far, and makes the difficult saves. He captained the most recent Euro and World Cup champs. He is the best keeper in the world, Buffon is no longer.
One good game for Walcott? That is all it takes? He has 4 career goals for England, and only had 8 with Arsenal last season, with 11 assists. Your Arsenal/England bias is getting the best of you.
Muller has 10 goals internationally, in only 3 more appearances. Last World Cup, he won the Golden Boot with five goals to go with his three assists, at age 20!

Solid stuff argos..
your argument on muller was strong..
This TD comes down to preferences..
I admitted I forgot ozil..
my bad, I was in a rush to get to south beach, to see the place explode..
im not going to the heat game, too expensive..
i figured being in the city was the next best thing..
i am going to see your blue jays get a spankin tommorrow vs fish..
Im in a rush, gametime is in 4hrs..

I have nothing to counter, and I have said all I want to say. My team is better.
Jays stand a chance against Marlins, as Romero is pitching. Although he has been ****, he is the best pitcher for the Jays now after three of their starters, including one of the league's best in Morrow, went down and onto the DL for extended period of times with in four days.
