Although I know most of you will hate me for that suggestion but IMO Andrea Pirlo has to be in first team. I'm not sure who he should replace (IMO Valentino Mazzola or Bulgarelli who were of course two of the greatest Italian players ever but didn't contribute anything important to the NT) but he has archieved so much with the NT so that he finally deserves a place here..

Valentino Mazzola is one of the best 4-5 italian players of all time, I wouldn't move him to reserves even if he didn't contribute anything to the NT.
Bulgarelli was great in 1962 WC and in 1966 he had a knee injury in the decisive match against North Korea, I think he has been unlucky because he played in one of the most confusing era for Italy NT.

Pirlo has surely achieved more than them even if I think 2006 has been the worst WC ever with 2002 one...

Bulgarelli and Pirlo deserve both to stay in the 23 men squad... Bulgarelli was a better player but Pirlo has been more important for the NT...

I'd like to see other opinions.

Well there's no reason to put him in first team as he wasn't a better defender than the ones who are in first team here..

I agree but if our standard of choice for all stars teams/nationals is how much players has been important for the team/national Cannavaro deserves more than Nesta to stay in first team, Nesta was better than Cannavaro but mainly cause injuries he never reached Fabio's performances in WC 2006.

Pirlo would deserve to stay in first team but there are a lot of midfielders who deserve it too.
Del Piero absolutely doesn't there are tons of forwards who played better than him with national team. Totti played better than Alex but not enough to deserve the first team.

Why the hell should Pirlo be in the first team more than Zambrotta, Totti or Gattuso or Cannavaro or Del Piero...This team needs 2 destroyers in midfield and needs right winger/midfielder, that's why I made those changes. Pirlo can replace only Rivera or Antognoni or Mazzola, and since all of them were 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 times better than Pirlo, I don't want to insult Italian football heritage. WC 2006 was bullshit, I don't count that title...

Why the hell should those German players from 2014 WC be in the first team ahead of guys from 1954 or 1972 or 1974 or 1990 or 1980 etc...


If this childish bullshitting continues, I'll update all NT teams with 23 players who represented their countries on WC 2014, so finally everybody will be satisfied...

After that I'll leave this site forever and move to MagicDip's and Godoy's site, if they'll accept me there...

There are no All Stars teams so I could work there peacefully...



Anyway Simcav is also administrator and has all the "permissions" as I do, so he can update every thread on the site.

I just wanted to inform all the members what will happen if I see those changes, so if I "vanish" suddenly, you know what's happened...

It's not easy to select only 23 players for these biggest national teams and it's impossible get everyone to agree.
We have to create this team to use them in PES so we can't choose 3-4 players in the same position.
Pirlo had probably the best performances in italian national team in the last 10 years but Italy had dozens of amazing players in his position and we can't say Pirlo is surely better than Antognoni, Rivera, etc so IMHO it's not a mistake not choose Pirlo in 23 squad.
The best playing system in italian history is Catenaccio and it needs two defensive midfielders, in first team we had only Tardelli.

23 is the squad for NTs... And I think It's a good choice to keep that "system" because this kind of All Stars team still being National Teams
