30 Days to the World Cup!
Spain released its 30-man provisional World Cup roster and it is basically an all-star team. Take a look at the clubs these players represent: 7 from Barcelona, 4 from Real Madrid, 4 from Atletico Madrid, 3 from Manchester City, 2 each from Chelsea ManU Napoli and Bayern Munich, and then 1 each from Juventus, Bilbao, Arsenal and Sevilla.
And to think that seven of those players won't make the cut! Those seven players who get cut would start for just about any other World Cup team. Who would you cut?
