Serie A Team Of The Week: Round 14

Team of the week (4-3-3):

Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus): Yet again proved why he is the best in the world as he managed to stop Milan from scoring with some brilliant saves.

Alessandro Nesta (Milan): The San Siro applauded his performance as the Rossoneri veteran still continues to be one of the best defenders out there.

Walter Samuel (Inter): Perfect defending against the Viola strikers. It will be difficult for Materazzi to reclaim his first team place.

Juan (Roma): Does not make any mistakes in defence and then helps out the attack whenever there is the need: indeed, he scored the opening goal for the Giallorossi.

Moris Carrozzieri (Atalanta): Very important for the Bergamaschi’s defence; apart from being solid, he is also quite spectacular in his defensive duties. A joy to watch.

Andrea Pirlo (Milan): He finished fifth in the Golden Ball race, but fact is that he is the number one player in his role. There’s no one like him in Serie A, or in any other league.

Luis Antonio Jimenez (Inter): Only played because of Stankovic’s injury, but that was good luck for both him and Inter as he played a wonderful game, scoring against his former team.

Cristiano Doni (Atlanta): Still going on strong and claiming a place in the next Euro 2008 squad with assists and goals in every game.

Julio Cruz (Inter): What can you say about a player who always scores whenever he plays? Ruthless finisher.

Claudio Bellucci (Sampdoria): The Marassi stadium gave him a standing ovation when he was substituted late in the game. Two goals, two other important goal scoring opportunities and many assists led him to the man of the match award.

Goran Pandev (Lazio): Scored a goal, but more importantly he worked hard for the team. The Macedonian was always trying to pass the ball to his comrades, which many felt was a weakness in his game before.

Honourable Mention

Sebastien Frey (Fiorentina)

Maggio (Sampdoria)

Massimo Paci (Parma)

Salihamidzic (Juventus)

Ferreira Pinto (Atalanta)

Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Inter)

Antonio Cassano (Sampdoria)

Glad to see a LAzio man there.
