I guess there are almost as many opinions about the best line-up as there
are soccer-interested Germans...
If *I* had to decide, first of all I'd play Kuntz instead of Riedle.
I don't like Basler, but he's been playing pretty well. Still I'd rather
have Haessler, Moeller, Sammer and Wagner. Gaudino shouldn't be benched
for the whole tournament, either. I think he might be a good replacement
BTW: it's been fascinating to see how much evaluation of the players by
the media is based on personal preference. After the Ireland match, which
didn't disturb me unduly btw., several reporters blamed Wagner for not
playing more conspicuous...
That's ridiculous since he didn't get the ball at all during the first half!
