There's a full team of Chol's, though unfortunately no keeper. So.... is any Chol ok in the nets?

Could be a referees' nightmare :)

His name really made me laugh going through it. While doing the teams, I decided that Uruguay have a very good squad. I fancy them to get to the quarters maybe, some great players

Capello is considering a new formation e.g three central defenders. This probably means that all the centre backs in the squad would stay

Can also be interpreted as 'Capello clears way for Italy to win world cup'

Only if Barry doesn't make it to the World Cup it seems.
