Zinedine, Zenden ... tomayto, tomahto

There's this exhibition match tonight at Old Trafford, featuring Manchester United versus a European XI coached by Marcello Lippi. Lippi has called up various luminaries for his squad, but Zinedine Zidane said no -- presumably because he doesn't want to play on the same team as Marco Materazzi.

But now today comes the news of a couple late additions: Robbie Fowler and ... Bolo Zenden. Because if you can't get Zidane, Zenden is the logical replacement, right? I have to wonder if some poor flunky just got their names mixed up.

The other alternative is that Lippi realized the Man United squad was going to include such superstars as John O'Shea and Keiran Richardson, and he just wanted to give them a sporting chance.
