The rest of the names will be announced in the coming days. There will be 15 world stars available. They will be managed by Italy’s Carlo Ancelotti – and expert referee Pierluigi Collina will also be present.
The organizing committee said the world stars will give the event a special flavor and make fans happy, as they wait for the great challenge between Kuwait stars and the world legends. The committee is racing with time to complete the preparations, particularly in regards to agreements with world stars, as contacts with them began two weeks ago which is relatively a short time.
COMMENT - reportedly Qadsia fans are unhappy their goalkeeping hero is not running away with the votes! More information about this game can be found at Jaber Stadium. A full round of Kuwait Premier League fixtures have been released for the weekend of this game so I guess they will be canceled?
Given FIFA's suspension of Kuwait, where does that leave the foreign players? I guess as they are all at that age where they don't care anymore nothing will be done.
