    Hi, Christophe, nobody from Africa? South America? But evidently, somebody from China 😉
    What do you think of the selection? Does it match with your experiences?

    Maybe there will be some late additions from these regions. We will see

    The selection is very interesting, especially in the paint. However, I really want to see what Nikos Pappas can do against US competition.

    Both Nocedal and Gaynor are from Argentina though they play in Europe
