Very surprised VDS and Neville are going along with Rooney and Ronaldo...nomanutd.com said:Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed a full-strength, 23-man squad that will travel
to Japan for the FIFA Club World Cup next week.

go with the European title.

December (KO 10:30 CET) against one of Adelaide United (Australia), Waitakere
United (New Zealand), or Gamba Osaka (Japan).
In the other half of the draw, Egyptian giants Al-Ahly fight it out with Mexicans
