Good morning folks. I’m heading to Toronto this morning but I wanted to give you folks something to read before I headed north.
For those of you who hadn’t seen it, here is my ESPN.com story on the league’s next generation of all-stars.
I wasn’t able to get a proper roundup together since I’m traveling this morning, but here is one of the early day’s big stories:
‘Injury’ forces Robinho out of Olympics
Just when you thought the battle between clubs and countries over the Olympics was over comes the latest. Real Madrid has decided to keep Robinho with the club rather than letting him go to the Olympics because of a groin injury Real Madrid discovered during a physical this week.
Brazil’s federation isn’t buying it, saying Robinho’s injury could have been treated with the Olympic team.
What now? Brazil has replaced Robinho with Cruizero midfielder Ramires and the Olympics have lost another marquee attraction for the soccer tournament.
What do you think of my list of future all-stars? Who did I forget? Also, what do you think of Real Madrid’s decision to keep Robinho with the club?
I’ll check back in once I arrive in Toronto. Enjoy the rest of your morning.
