With the first round of matches over, it is time to select our Team of Round One. Difficult choices had been made, especially with omitting a few players entirely, or merely placing them on the bench. I can also hint that someone by the first name of Mario has been mentioned, but it is not the Italian. Without further ado, here is the team:
GK – Przemyslaw Tyton (Poland)
Imagine the feeling of sitting on the bench expecting not to play, to then being dragged onto the pitch to face a penalty because the goalkeeper who started ahead of you gets sent off. Przemyslaw Tyton was probably thinking “bloody hell” as he was about to come onto the pitch with his first task being to save a penalty. Keeping a cool head, the dived to his left to save the penalty taken by Greek player Karagounis. Cue “Rise of the Tyton” headlines.
