People like Zidane, Thuram and now Nedved answered NO to that question.
They "retired" from International football, and then decided to come back for the WC. Quite convenient, eh?
In my view, this kind of behaviour is disgraceful. They are going to steal a place in the team from somebody who actually worked to achieve qualification.
I wish there were more Maldinis around, he had the balls to resist to the several 'sirens' who wanted him back in the Italian NT.
I guess it's hard to find a man true to his word nowadays.
