How come has Sacko been called up. Mali must be poor having limited options by selecting Hadi

ROI must have similar problems with the selection of O'Kane, the Turks will eat him up

Ronaldo can't get a game & is sadly out of form at Leeds although he's only on standby

It's incredible to think that average players can gain international caps, just look at the English lads who have been handed caps like confetti over the last three decades

Mali must be short of players as they only have one scheduled match during the friendly matches.

If they acquire a couple of injuries/suspensions perhaps they maybe up the creek !

Should have included Japan v Mali in the International 20 competition with hindsight

Can't find out whether Ideguchi is in the Japan squad. They have games against Mali and Ukraine.
