Ps about the youngs, I think they're very, very, promising, but I think it's important to remind that not always the best youngs become the best players.
Among the winners of the U20 WCh, for example, we only have Cate Bosetti (MVP) in the NT, and we had Diouf in the past. All the others are practically vanished...
And among the winners of the first U18 WCh, I think we only have Egonu and Lubian (plus Orro).
Still, if we'll kept winning juniores WCh/ECh :P, even having 2-3 players by each teams ready for the NT may be enough to stay very competitive
And of course the Club Italia can help a lot!
