England: Once again, the Italians will be one of the strongest defensive teams; they won the 2006 World Cup with this as their foundation - and there really seems to be something ingrained in their mentality that makes this component of their game so prominent. This time around three of the back four from the winning side in the 2006 World Cup will be available again. Keeper, Buffon, is still one of the most outstanding in that position in the world. However, the lack of firepower upfront and creativity in midfield will prevent them from posing enough of a threat to be real contenders this time around.

Madison, Wisc. ÃƒÆ’ƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Over the three-day Memorial Day holiday weekend, the top 14 schools in the nation – as determined by their performance in one of the seven Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association conferences to which they belong – were in America’s Heartland racing for the 2010 ICSA/APS Team Race National Championship title on Lake Mendota. And for one team, St. Mary’s College (St. Mary’s, Md.), it was a reversal of fortune from 2009 when the Seahawks lost this championship on a tie breaker, to come back and win this year’s contest on a tie break with the same team – Boston College. Proving that they are a powerhouse in this format of sailing, the win marks the fifth time the Seahawks have clinched this unique championship which pits each college's three-boat team against another's in a round-robin series of matches.
