    CANCELLATIONS

    For Holland, Jaap Stam and Frank de Boer have rang Advocaat to cancel. Both defenders are incapable of playing next Wednesday's exhibition match against France due to injury problems.

    Wilfred Bouma's participation is uncertain, the PSV defender is struggling with a minor injury but he's hoping to be able to play.

    For France, Arsenal players Robert Pires and Patrick Vieira have also cancelled on the match for reasons unknown. France coach Santini called on Sidney Govou (Olympique Lyon) and Benôit Pedretti (Sochaux) to replace the Arsenal stars.

    The match has lost some appeal with the above mentioned players unavailable.

    It will be fun to watch Davids and Zidane duke it out in the middle.
    And I'm getting to see the match LIVE!!!! (one of few live friendlies for the year)

    Hopefully Trez can notch a few goals........

    There is hope for Erik ;)

    Zidane is uncertain after he was forced to come off in the 80th minute against Sevilla. Marlet, Pires and Vieira are all out as well, their replacements are Cheyrou, Govou and Pedretti.

    No, he didn't. Yes, Anelka apologized for a specific event but I don't believe he showed remorse for everything the FA (and Santini) holds against him. Who would have known, Anelka has grown up since then but he'll have to do better than that to re-enter the squad, Santini holds grudges. And though he would be useful, they can go on perfectly well without him.

    No Saha and Anelka on this match, but Santini has called Johan Micoud (Werder Bremen) and Ludovic Giuly (AS Monaco).
    Hmm, very interesting ;)

    I think Holland will win....Van der sar will score from a goal kick, then there will be a huge debate as to if he actually meant to do it, or it was a fluke. Seedorf will score from the half way line, and Henry will score an own goal...

    3- 0 to Holland!!!!!!!!!!!!!
