image for Nicolas Anelka, Robert Green and Wayne Rooney set up 'Rest Of The World' team

Three of the World Cup's most disgruntled players have decided that rather than play out their roles in their international teams, they will combine forces to start a new 'Rest Of The World' team.

Nicolas Anelka was sent home from the French team after a disagreement with the coach. He was all set to jump on a plane home, when he was approached by Rooney and Green who had come up with the idea of a new team. The three players met up in Wayne Rooney's hotel to discuss their plans and meet potential team members.

First in to see them was Australian Harry Kewell, followed closely by Robbie Earle, who was thought to be looking for a coaching staff position.

Other applicants quickly followed, including several members of the French and German squads. The three founding members said that all the applicants would be considered, with the exception of Itumeleng Khune, the South African Goalkeeper, who Robert Green said wasn't needed.

The Rest Of The World team will be unable to compete in the World Cup this time round, unless they recruit enough disgruntled players from any one team to cause that team to have to withdraw from the competition, leaving a vacancy.

It is thought that The Rest Of The World could possibly slot neatly into Group C with Slovenia, Algeria and the USA.
