McLean getting attacked on Twitter because he decided to represent Eire. I'm not sure why they're surprised by this. This is his display pic:



ETA: Death threats
quote:


Death threats have been directed at former Northern Ireland U-21 footballer James McClean following his selection to play for the Republic at the Euro 2012 finals next month.

Two of the messages directed at him on Twitter threatened to have him shot and also contained sectarian abuse.

...

One Twitter user, with the account ‘RobbieLittle@PotKettleBlack3’, posted: “F*** up your dirty fenian b****** il make sure you get shot when you set foot back into gods country #FTP.”

Another using the name ‘James W Magee@JamesWMagee07’ posted: “U deserve to be shot for that comment!! Your playing for Ireland and not the country you were born in (NI). #p****”

Both messages have since been deleted.

McClean, who carries an Irish passport and identifies himself on Twitter as a ‘Irish professional footballer’ made a general response following the hate-filled abuse.

He said: “Love the dogs abuse am gettin of shock N.I fans, just worry about watchin ur own country at the euros... oh wait #mybad #awkward haha.”

Spain's official side yet to be announced, but Tarzan definitely will miss the event.

I'm seeing some Albiol as a starter comments, with Javi Martinez sliding in to a CB role.

This tourney, on paper anyway, really looks like the beginning of the fourth reich.

Croatia:



I'm not overly familiar with their defenders but they have some nice attacking midfielders. I don't see Srna that often but he impresses me every time.



I think some of these are preliminary before being cut to 23?

I'm a big fan of Lovren, and Corluka and Pranjic haven't been bad when I've watched them. I've also loved Srna for a while.

Have way too much talent up top and not enough in the midfield. Looking forward to all of you making flopping comments all summer

Certainly not the deepest roster they ever have had. Could definitely be a struggle.

Cut: De Rossi,



After Pirlo, De Rossi is the best player on Italy's squad. Without much debate.

There is a reason Real Madrid, Man U, Man City etc have all been falling over themselves to sign him from Roma. Namely, that he's probably the best defensive midfielder in the world.

Where is the poacher/finisher for Italy? Kind of surprised at Matri's exclusion.
