    That was one agonizing match to watch. I can only hope there more players joining that camp; then of course we can always blame the heavy down pour. Seriously, this crop of dream team does not ispire confidenece one bit, Hopefuly, Imo Ezekiel and the rest of the Europe based crew come to our rescue, this current Dream Team is a complete nightmare. They were like cows on a serious grazing mission.
