Is this the first step towards the Official World Rankings?

With the 9-a-side domestic league kicking off in the Netherlands this year, maybe we'll see an 18-a-side test at some point in 2010, even if you can't make it to the EC?

...traditional rivalry Germany vs Netherlands?

I wouldn't say 9s is a Clayton's game either. It obviously has a role, and it's not known yet whether it will remain important like that, or even become in some ways a recognised separate sport.

@Dante: There's probably that much talk about Croatia as they fielded a complete squad of locals. Most of the readers here would probably agree (and was mentioned in the discussions here earlier) that in the 9-a-side format a couple of good aussies make a big difference and that the handicap system does not completely make up for it. Sweden won the tournament because of this in 2007.

Great to see that you start a competition this year! Best of luck for that!

@Brett: Sorry for not getting back yet to your email. I'll reply in the next few days.
