2005 Club World Cup was a sham. Hypia's and Pongolle's goals should have stood against Sao Paulo and we could have won that trophy, but that was then and this is now. Huge game against Flamengo and this is where we need all our horses to plough the field in this encounter. Wijnaldum went through a session today but I am not sure he is match fit and VVD did training also and let's hope he is (or both) 100% match fit.
With the line up in mind, Trent can return to first 11 and move Henderson from CB to MF where VVD can return (hopefully) and accommodate to his usual position as a CB along side with Gomez. Bear in mind I thought Henderson did well as a makeshift CB in the previous game. The Midfield is a tricky one here and if Wijnaldum is not available then I would put in Henderson along side with Keita or maybe use Hendo as the number 6 and Keita on the right but there's a toss-up between Milner and Oxlade. The usual front three be there in attack and my line up is as follows:
TAA - Gomez - VVD - Robertson
Keita - Henderson - Milner/Oxlade Chamberlain
Salah - Firmino - Mane
This is our fourth attempt of trying to win this trophy and let's hope we can do it this time. The kickoff is at 5:30 PM (GMT) and best of luck Redmen.
