    The teams I have decided to use are 3.5 and 4* International teams, handily there are 22 of these teams which covers the number of players.

    As it is going to be drawn at random, and the difference between 3.5 and 4* is minimal I feel that this is still fair, as it is pot luck if you get a 3.5 or a 4* side.

    There is to be no team swapping, your drawn team is final.

    The teams available are as follows with their rating:

    1. Australia 3.5
    2. Austria 3.5
    3. Belgium 3.5
    4. Bulgaria 3.5
    5. Cameroon 4
    6. Denmark 4
    7. Ecuador 3.5
    8. Finland 3.5
    9. Greece 4
    10. Hungary 3.5
    11. Norway 4
    12. Paraguay 4
    13. Poland 3.5
    14. Rep. of Ireland 4
    15. Romania 4
    16. Scotland 4
    17. South Africa 3.5
    18. Sweden 4
    19. Switzerland 4
    20. Ukraine 3.5
    21. United States 3.5
    22. Uruguay 4

    The draw will follow shortly...

    (There will be 1 'unknown player' in the draw, this place will be taken up by the next player to sign up, if no player does sign up then that group will play as normal with just 4 teams, the top 2 still getting to advance to the next stage)

    Please begin your group stage games, remember to play each team twice (home and away), extra time does not count, it is the score at the end of 90 minutes, so draws are possible.

    When you have played your game please post up your results, if they have been posted by your opponent already then please quote them to confirm.

    Good luck!

    Guys can you make sure you add the people in your group into your FL now so we know thats covered...

    Jonny - nice one mate - glad to see you found a fit with the International teams. What are the deadlines? 2 weeks for the group stages than a week per knockout stage?

    Damn you Gatidd. :D

    Sweden is probably the pick of the bunch.

    Happy with Poland though. They have a great keeper. :)

    Think that Pseudo's got a good one with Norway to be honest!!! Riise's left boot is an absolute weapon!

    What's the ruling on things like shooting straight from kick-off? Not a fan of it myself, but if everyone else is doing it I don't want to miss out!!!
