Probably just making up numbers, because there are some great players on the list. Any chance to watch Ronaldinho is a treat.

if you ask me....i think who ever made roni's team is smart ...

the other team has so many stars and could have problems building up plays while the other team if u ask me the play will focus on ronaldinho ronaldo kaka eto ....perhaps adriano ;)

It's great that these players are turning out for the game, however why not have involved some International players from the countries actually affected?

probably the same reason why players like li tie are playing, like danwin says, by random choice

manchester united have a derby game against city on the 13th so i wouldn't be surprised if he couldn't make it anyhow. as well nesta and milan visit reggina on the very same day, 13th. if that helps out any

I think they've picked these players to get maximum revenue. By having Li Tie they will persuade the Chinese audience to watch, just basically trying to get as much money and viewers as possible from each country by involving players from the respected countries.

then german national team just played against a Bundesliga allstar team, the game ended 2-2. About four million euros go to the tsunami victims.

any help to diminish the disaster is welcome.

Most likely there are no more stars cause simpl either their coaches didn't alowed them or they were in risk of injury!

but always a treat watching ronaldo and adriano! :D

I was about to post that but you beat me to it. Should be an interesting game, usually lots of goals whenever this type of match happens

Of course it's a great initiative...

phrase, i dont think its in disguisem, bro. . i think they intentionally marketed it that way.

Damarcus beasley (USA and PSV Eindhoven) is supposed to play according to reports on the US team's website.

YANKS - the game is live on ESPN2 right now. peace
