Luiz Felipe Scolari made official his 23-man list for the upcoming Euro 2008. His midfield is one to envy with players like Simão Sabrosa, Nani, Ricardo Queresma, and yes, Cristiano Ronaldo. The backline looks really solid with Chelsea duo Paulo Ferreira and Ricardo Carvalho teaming up with Real Madrid’s Pepe and Stuttgart’s Fernando Meira.
Without a doubt the biggest absence on this list that of Inter midfielder Maniche.
