I sure miss his gheyrat and fight on the field
I am ok with the idea of younger players, but I think in a world cup some experienced older players could be really usefull, cuz young players without worldcup experience could have problems with huge psyhological and mental stress. And by mentioning experienced players of course I dont want to see a situation like Daei in 2006... but Ando is very fit for his age and he has worldcup experience, as you meentioned his passion and energy could influence the whole team positive.. I think he would be very usefull...and the coach could let him play some 70 min and substitude him, if his performance would weaken during game.
