Picture_1_188 The World Cup is football’s biggest shop window (God, I sound like Clive Tyldesley). If you play well, the big clubs come calling. We’ve seen some cracking individual performances in Germany this summer, but if you could sign just one player for your team, based on what you’ve seen at the 2006 World Cup, who would it be?

A few names to conjure with: Maxi Rodriguez (Argentina, pictured), Philip Lahm (Germany), Sulley Muntari (Ghana), Fabio Grosso (Italy), Franck Ribery (France) and Fernando Torres (Spain).

    I’d be pushing hard for Torres, plum for the picking over at Atletico Madrid.

  2. truth says:

    Ribery, Rodriguez, and Lahm, in that order. Liverpool, are you listening?

  3. Ollie, Editor says:

    Agreed truth – Ribery looks awesome, and he doesn’t cheat either.

  4. Nick says:

    Andrea Pirlo for Man Utd. Need someone to fill the gap left by Keane and he’s a dead-ball specialist.
